Grant submission guidelines can be found at www.eatonfuneralservice.com/7kfor70years and facebook.com/eatonfuneralservice. Winners will be announced Monday, May 31 with a ceremony following on Tuesday, June 1.

For 70 years, Eaton Funeral Service has provided families with remembrance experiences through celebrations of their loved one’s life and the time they shared together.

“It’s only fitting to give back to the community that has trusted in them since 1951 in big way,” said Nick Miller, manager. “We are proud and honored to be a part of such a community for this long. In honor of this anniversary marker, we want to give back to the community we love.”

“We’re going to need your help picking those nonprofits. So, please stay tuned on our Facebook page and website to learn more about “7k for 70 years.”

Submissions will close on Wednesday, May 19. On Friday, May 21, the top proposals, decided by an independent committee, will be posted on Facebook for the community to vote on until Thursday, May 27 at 11:59 p.m.
