Marie Callender’s Comforts from Home Project Helps US Military
We love Marie Callender's and we are especially fond of the desserts. I really like companies that give back as well so I was thrilled to partner with Marie Callender's when I learned how their Comforts from Home Project benefits the men and women in the US military.
My father is retired from the US Army so I grew up in a military family. My dad has been to war for the US and to many other countries when they were not at peace either. My father has seen a lot. Serving your country almost always requires sacrifice and I so admire those who do it. I really do.
When a company like Marie Callender's does something to give back, it makes me feel good knowing a product that we already love is giving so much back.
MARIE CALLENDER'S COMFORTS FROM HOME PROJECT
Marie Callender’s Comforts From Home Project makes it easy to support the brave men and women of the U.S. military. Simply enter the eight-digit code found on specially marked packages of Marie Callender’s dinners and desserts online at www.ComfortsFromHome.com, and they will send a donation to USO2GO.
Each code entered equals a $0.50 donation to the USO2GO program.
USO2GO is a USO program that brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world.
Each kit will contain the comforts of home, such as games, athletic equipment, books and furnishings. USO2GO kits help to transform a remote base into a place where troops can organize a pick-up football game, relax in beanbag chairs and swap stories, or send e-mails to loved ones back home.
For every entry by 1/31/2015 of an 8-digit code found on participating products, Marie Callender’s will donate $.50 to the USO2GO program. Guaranteed minimum donation: $100,000. Maximum donation: $250,000. Limit 5 code entries per person/computer each day. Valid in U.S. Only.
