Hurricane Harvey Funeral Directors’ Relief Fund
As the funeral profession’s leading voices, the co-hosts of Funeral Nation TV Ryan Thogmartin and Jeff “The Funeral Commander” Harbeson announce the creation of Hurricane Harvey Funeral Director Relief Fund. The fund is for funeral directors and their families that have suffered loss as a direct result of Hurricane Harvey. “I am personally aware of a funeral director that has been devastated with the loss of their home and I’m certain there are others that need FN help. As a profession, we always take care of others on their worst days, it’s now our responsibility to stand in the gap for our people during this tragedy” says Harbeson.
The mechanism to collect the donated funds is provided by Treasured Memories in West Virginia, free of any charges or fees. President Jimmy Altmeyer and his team have graciously offered their platform with no fees to help fellow funeral directors. The collected funds will be administered and by the Texas Funeral Directors Association as they are intimately knowledgeable of the situation on the ground. Every dollar will go directly to help funeral directors and their families.
“I’d like to personally thank Jamie Meredith of C&J Financial for his ground work of helping Jeff and I to connect the different participating organizations to get this much needed fund launched” says Thogmartin. Watch Funeral Nation TV episode #86 premiering Friday, September 1st as the FN crew opened the fund with a $500 donation and challenges every funeral home, vendor, provider, and individuals to donate.
