As the holiday season approaches, GloriAnn Farms and partner Five Crowns Marketing are getting into the giving spirit. After two months of promotions, GloriAnn Farms is excited to announce this year’s charitable contributions totaled just shy of $40,000! For the third year in a row, donations were made to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF).
In partnering with both of these very worthy organizations, GloriAnn Farms and Five Crowns Marketing have run promotions with retailers to draw attention to these important causes. For every case of sweet corn sold to participating retailers during the month of August, GloriAnn Farms made a donation to the IFHF totaling almost $19,000.
“The IFHF is today addressing a critical need: helping service members suffering the effects of traumatic brain injury and psychological health conditions. The IFHF is addressing this need head-on by building a series of diagnosis and treatment centers to provide care for these wounded heroes,” states David Winters, President of IFHF. He goes on to say “Thank you for your generous support and your concern for our wounded heroes in uniform and their families. Together we are helping to repay the debt all Americans owe them for their selfless service to our nation.”
Benefiting NBCF, the same was true for the Corn for the Cause campaign during the month of October. Through the sales of sweet corn to participating retailers, over $21,100 was donated to the NBCF. “For three years, GloriAnn Farms and Five Crowns Marketing’s support of our mission to help women now has impacted thousands facing a diagnosis of breast cancer,” says NBCF Co-Founder & CEO, Janelle Hail. “The funds they’ve raised this October will help us provide life-saving early detection services for those in need in all 50 states.”
In addition to receiving thanks from the organizations themselves, consumers also shared their thoughts with GloriAnn Farms regarding support of such worthy causes. “We received some really positive feedback from people via our social media platforms and website this year,” said Katie Veenstra, Director of Marketing for GloriAnn Farms. “Many people are affected by breast cancer in one way or another and we all owe thanks to our Armed Forces, so these are two causes that most everyone can connect with and are happy to support.”
“GloriAnn Farms and Five Crowns Marketing strongly believe in giving back to the community, and being able to make these donations to such worthy organizations is truly an honor. Year after year, we are proud to continue our partnerships with both IFHF and NBCF,” states Mark Bacchetti, President of GloriAnn Farms. “We hope these partnerships will thrive for years to come!”
