UPDATE: Money given today has helped us reach the goal! The Zawadzki family would like to thank all of you for your donations - and to those donating in memory of a family member who was also a veteran - your gift was especially meaningful and acknowledged.

Throughout the United States, today is known as "Giving Tuesday." Unlike "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday" this day was started as an alternative way to celebrate the gift-giving traditions at Christmas time...a way to help worthwhile charities while avoiding the commercialization of the holidays. So in the spirit of the season, listen to Kenneth Zawadzki Sr.'s story. Life had never been easy for Kenneth. One of 22 children, Kenneth grew up in hard times in Chicago. At the age of 19, Kenneth answered the call to duty and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Little did he know then that Agent Orange, the herbicide used during the war, would create the cancer that would eventually be his demise. Kenneth came home from the war and started a family. In 1980, his failing eyesight prevented his ability to work and he has been on disability since that time - unfortunately the SSI program he was enrolled in does not provide burial benefits. . To accept trustee assistance, you must give up the right to have any kind of public funeral service - and his family wanted to be able to have a dignified service. The Veterans Administration is providing a free space, opening fees and marker at the Marion National Cemetery - which also saves a space for his widow's burial in the future - a very generous benefit to veterans. The family had saved a small amount of money, Cass County provides $100 for Veterans upon death and Fisher Funeral Chapel extended a Veteran's discount. Now, we are starting a Fund the Funeral account to enable friends and community members to pitch in to honor this Veteran's life. Maybe donate a couple bucks in memory of special Veterans in your life as a way of helping their fellow comrade? Your kindness is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
