SPONSORED CONTENT BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT SPONSORED CONTENT I Celebrating Lives, Preserving Memories t’s easy to drive past any of the Beinhauer Funeral Homes in the area and assume that all they deal in are end of life services. However, since their founding, the Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes have been dedicated not only to providing full-service funerals, cremations and cemetery services, but to local charities, veterans’ groups and ongoing relief efforts as well. Through these efforts for the living, Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes can better serve those we’ve lost. “There’s a lot that goes on here beyond funerals,” said Scott Beinhauer. “Yes, we have our onsite crematory in our Dormont location with state-of-the-art technology and the ability for families to witness cremations in an aesthetically pleasing environment. We have Woodruff Memorial Park Cemetery and our Peaceful Pastures pet cemetery, but we also have our Beinhauer Foundation which donates annually to local charities.” Beinhauer’s is also deeply appreciative and committed to the dedicated work of hospice caregivers through our “Caregiver Excellence Award”. This award is presented monthly to a caregiver that was nominated by their fellow hospice workers, patients or volunteers for their exemplary care. At the end of each year, monthly award winners and their guests are invited to attend an awards banquet a nd voted to receive our “Caregiver of the Year” award. Additional information can be found at www.beinhauer.com. Veterans and veterans’ groups are also a high priority for the Beinhauer Family. Both Rick and Scott Beinhauer are U.S. Army Veterans. As members of the Veterans & Family Memorial Care Association, Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes can help families of veterans navigate the red tape and ensure their loved ones receive all honors and accolades they deserve at their funeral service. By being a Veterans & Family Memorial Care provider, Beinhauer’s can help you take advantage of the VFMC free burial registration program. The program also offers a 10 percent discount to veterans and their spouses for funeral and cremation pre-arrangements. Beinhauer’s also process federal-, state -, and county benefits applications at no cost to your family. Going a step further, Beinhauer’s also supports programs such as Stockings for Soldiers, a Christmas program through which stockings are distributed to members of the community between October 1 and December 1, and are filled with donations that can be used by military personnel deployed abroad. Last year, Beinhauer’s shipped close to 2,300 stockings overseas to various service members. Stockings also are distributed to local veterans’ hospitals and to National Guard members. These efforts demonstrate that Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes isn’t just a service provider, but a staple of the community, going above and beyond every day. The Beinhauer Family has been serving the community since 1860 for six generations. Few businesses can claim such history, and few have accomplished so much generation after generation.
