(Cushing, Okla) — One of Cushing’s oldest institutions is in financial jeopardy and is requesting your help.

A letter has been issued to Fairlawn-New Zion families and the citizens of Cushing requesting help through donations.   The letter reads:

“While able to make payroll for the current month, funds are not available to run through summer and beyond.  Due to fewer donations this fiscal year, we are requesting any monetary donations that are possible, no matter how small.

The caretaker staff hours have been reduced, but they are giving of their own time and resources to maintain the grounds as you expect them to be maintained.

Look into your hearts and help us in our hour of need.

May God Bless you and guide your decision.”

Romelle Seever – Board Secretary

Donations may be mailed to Cushing Fairlawn-New Zion Cemetery, PO Box 1501, Cushing, OK  74023
