HERR’S® Introduces Limited Edition Whole Grain Pretzels to Support Paralyzed Veterans
NOTTINGHAM, Pa. (May 28, 2015) - Herr’s® announced today a partnership with Paralyzed Veterans of America, a nonprofit veterans service organization that works to improve the lives of our nation’s disabled veterans by ensuring access to quality health care, benefits and jobs. The company is producing limited edition Whole Grain Pretzels with Flax Seed &Honey in a specially designed bag.
"Herr’s is dedicated to supporting our community in any way we can," said Ed Herr, President of Herr Foods. "We are proud to partner with Paralyzed Veterans of America, which is instrumental in advocating for veterans and all people with disabilities."
For every bag sold, Herr’s will make a 5-cent donation to Paralyzed Veterans of America, so that the organization can continue to deliver its programs and services free of charge. Over the past year Paralyzed Veterans of America provided services to more than 60,000 veterans and their families nationwide, and secured more than $290 million in new benefit awards and ancillary benefits for veteran clients. The organization also opened its seventh Operation PAVE (Paving Access for Veterans Employment) office in Chicago to provide vocational services to veterans, their families and caregivers in the region.
"As a nonprofit organization, every dollar raised on our behalf counts, and makes a difference in the life of a veteran," said Al Kovach, Jr., National President of Paralyzed Veterans. "We thank Herr’s for supporting our mission to ensure that disabled veterans have everything they need to thrive after serious injury."
The limited edition Herr’s Whole Grain Pretzels with Flax Seed &Honey feature the rich flavors of sesame, poppy and caraway seeds complemented with a hint of sweet golden honey. They are low in fat, a good source of whole grain and are higher in fiber than most pretzels. The pretzels are available until mid-July at select retailers throughout the country.
