U.C. Davis Funeral Home, 301 West Washington St., the professional Pekin Insurance pre-need agency in Morris, made the holidays more meaningful and merry to the troops overseas by participating in a recent “Care for the Troops with Life” sales contest.

For every life insurance application that U.C. Davis Funeral Home submitted during the contest, monetary funds were donated to the USO Operation Care Package program, whose goal is to support the soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen through care packages and letters of encouragement.

Thanks to the combined efforts of Pekin Insurance’s pre-need agencies, the company donated $20,000 to this worthy cause.

The company and its pre-need agencies sincerely thank the men and women who are making the sacrifice and commitment to fight for the freedom and safety of our country. This wasn an opportunity to provide members of the armed services with care packages to remind them of home and provide them encouragement during the holiday season.

In business since 1921, Pekin Insurance offers multiple lines of insurance in Illinois, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin. It is represented by nearly 1,200 independent agencies and more than 550 pre-need agencies.

Davis Funeral Home can assist with pre-need insurance needs with service that goes “Beyond the expected.”
