Because We Care...
Don't just meet expectations...
We, at Conway-Markham Funeral Home would like to thank each and every resident of Chickasaw County for your selfless donations of time and money during our first Red Kettle campaign. We couldn’t have done it without pulling together to exceed our expectations.
We are proud to announce that at the completion of the campaign on Christmas Eve we were able to raise over $10,000 for the Salvation Army - Chickasaw County Unit. Our initial budget going into 2016 was projected to be $1,300 for the entire fiscal year. We will now be able to keep approximately $7,000 to aid Chickasaw County Residents in in times of crisis. This goes far beyond and above what we had hoped for.
Thank you so much from the very bottom of our hearts! Happy New Year!!
