Celebrating the Foundation: Pork Care Packages
“I am a Gold Star Mother, and my family looks forward to the Pork Care Package we receive each year through the Survivorship Program. Not because we are struggling financially, but because there are good people who take the time to reflect on what our son sacrificed to serve his country.”
We believe in showing gratitude to military families for the sacrifices they’ve made to protect our freedom, which is why we deliver Pork Care Packages to Iowa families with active and reserve members of the Armed Forces.
Every December, we deliver 12,000 Pork Care Packages to the Iowa National Guard; 132nd Fighter Wing, Iowa Air National Guard; 185th Air Refueling Wing, Iowa Air National Guard; U.S. Army Reserves; U.S. Navy Reserves and U.S. Marine Corps Reserves.
Pork Care Packages are also sent to the Iowa National Guard’s Survivor Outreach Services to deliver to 600 Iowa families of fallen Soldiers.
The Pork Care Packages contain $40 worth of coupons good for various pork products, including fresh pork, ham, ribs, bacon and ground pork.
Supplying the resources for several home-cooked meals that bring families together is just one way we say “Thank You” to the men and women who sacrifice so much while protecting our freedom.
