MOBILE, AL (WKRG) — Funerals can be extremely expensive, so with the holidays around the corner, a non-profit funeral home in Mobile wants to help.

As seen on News 5’s “Mark Your Calendar” segment Thursday morning, Heritage Funeral Home is giving away $1 million worth of certificates to help pay for the cost of a funeral.  The $1,500 vouchers are good for the next year.

“Funeral costs are through the roof for so many families,” pastor C.D. McMillan. “With the crime rate in Mobile, we wanted to do something creative, different, innovative, so we came up with this idea.”

You can pick up the $1,500 voucher starting on Friday December 15, from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Heritage Funeral Home on 953 South Broad Street.

“There’s no strings attached, no paperwork or anything like that,” said Linda Harmon.
