St. Louis, MO: All-American Jerky, makers of all-natural beef stick products, announced their pledge on Veterans Day to provide $1,000,000 through sales of their products to H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, a St. Louis based national charity dedicated to the service and support of military families.
"The founding principles of our company are two fold," said Jack Buck III, co-owner of All-American Jerky and grandson of the St. Louis Cardinals' Broadcaster and WWII US Army Veteran Jack Buck, "To provide quality, value priced all-natural products we are proud to sell, and to support military members, veterans and their families in real and meaningful ways."
H.E.R.O.E.S. Care (Homefront Enabling Relationships, Empowerment and Opportunities through Support) works in partnership with other national charities to provide emergency financial and material aid, job training and placement services, and confidential mental health care free of charge through specially trained caregivers assigned to military families in the communities where they live.
"As of November of this year, more than 2700 caregivers in 25 states have received the specialized training offered through our Hometown Support Program," remarked Jon Jerome, president and CEO of H.E.R.O.E.S. Care. "Our strategic plan calls for the extension of this initiative into all 48 contiguous states by 2017. Thanks to the generosity of All American Jerky, we are one step closer to making this goal a reality."
