As much as I love charity, I hope you guys know about Share Our Strength and Operation Gratitude. If not, let me remind you what we’ve shared with you about each program in the past here at MomStart.
No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.
Operation Gratitude is a non-profit organization with supports people serving in the US Armed Forces through morale support gift packages. Gift packages are sent year round and can contain personal hygiene items, edible treats, stuffed animals and lovies, homemade knit and crochet items, and hand written letters of thanks.
As a team, we’ve worked to help both of these charities in different ways over the years. Now I’m going to share with you how enjoying your favorite summer sausage can help someone in need. Hickory Farms Signature Summer Sausage was recently rated the #1 Summer Sausage in America, winning the Masters of Taste Gold Medal for Superior Taste, in 2011. Hickory Farms offers a variety of specialty foods and holiday food gifts that are perfect for any budget and for everyone on your list this year. Hickory Farms has a partnership with Operation Gratitude – a national nonprofit that creates care packages for military men and women and their families. Hickory Farms has eight products that they offer free shipping to military APO and FPO addresses, including the “Home for the Holidays” gift basket featured in the product fact sheet.
For a limited time this holiday season, for each Party Planner Gift Box sold, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength, a leading national non-profit organization working to end childhood hunger in America. Additionally, for 40 of these gift items, Hickory Farms provides free military shipping, allowing our troops across the globe to share in holiday traditions. To date Hickory Farms and its customers have donated $1.9 million
You can find many gift basket varieties and many fruit baskets online at Hickoryfarms.com and in one of 700 holiday stores and kiosks across North America, as well as in select retailers. So head out to the mall, local retailer or sit on the couch and pick out something that’s perfect for you!
