It has been more than 90 years since President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 to be Armistice Day. Originally commemorating the end of World War I and the soldiers who fought in it, the holiday was later renamed Veterans Day and has come to be a celebration of all Armed Forces veterans who have served our country.
With Veterans Day approaching, it’s the perfect time to say ‘Thank you’ to the brave men and women of the United States military. Here at Hickory Farms, we are proud to be working with Operation Gratitude to bring a smile to the faces of our troops.
Through the month of November, Hickory Farms will donate a 10 oz. Summer Sausage to Operation Gratitude with the purchase of one of three designated gourmet gift boxes! Choose from a variety of delicious meat and cheese gift baskets, from Beef Hearty Hickory, to Summer Sausage and Cheese, to Home for the Holidays. We also offer free delivery to APO and FPO addresses for our military gifts, making it easy to show your deployed friends and family that you are thinking of them this holiday season.
In addition to these gifts for soldiers, Hickory Farms will also be donating to Operation Gratitude – but we need your help! During the month of November, we will donate 10 cents for every fan who “likes” our Facebook page.* Share with your friends and family to help us rack up those dimes and make a difference for our soldiers.
From gourmet sausage and cheese to nut gifts and sweets, there are so many ways to express your appreciation and share a taste of home with a soldier. In addition to thanking the men and women who are deployed, remember that their families are sacrificing for our country as well – sacrificing time with children, spouses, family and friends.
To learn more about the important work they do, visit Operation Gratitude, and be sure to check out the custom military Christmas gifts Hickory Farms offers.
*Maximum donation will be $10,000, valid 11/01/2012-11/30/2012
