As funeral professionals head to Texas for the National Funeral Directors Association convention and expo next week, they’ll have the opportunity to support Comfort Zone Camp, a bereavement organization that’s making a difference in the lives of thousands of children across the country.

The death of a parent, brother or sister happens to more than 2.5 million children in our country. Comfort Zone Camp transforms the lives of children by providing a place where children can come together and get the tools they need to help them cope with grief in their daily lives.

NFDA will be conducting a variety of fundraising efforts throughout the convention week to support Comfort Zone Camp. Batesville is joining the effort by making a donation for every drink purchased at the NFDA Welcome Reception on Sunday night at the Texas Memorial Stadium. Already a co-sponsor of the event, the company wanted to do something extra to raise awareness and money for an organization that shares its commitment to helping families after the death of a loved one.

“Funeral professionals understand the difficulties children and families face when a child loses a parent or sibling,” explains Troy Turner, Chief Marketing Officer for Batesville. “We’re very proud to join NFDA in supporting Comfort Zone Camp.  There’s not a better place, or group of people to partner with in raising money for this important cause.”
