posted on Saturday, July 7, 2018

The Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation is proud to support our military men and women through the Pork Care Package Program. We’re honored to have been recently recognized by the Employee Support for the Guard and Reserve with a Seven Seals Award.

The Seven Seals Award is the broadest and most inclusive award given by ESGR and is presented at the discretion of the State Chair or by ESGR senior leadership. The Seven Seals Award is presented in recognition of significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative, or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.

Honored during the annual ESGR luncheon in Des Moines, the prestigious Seven Seals award was one of 30 state and national awards presented to well-deserving employers and individuals.

“It was an emotional afternoon with both service members and employers sharing stories of support and care for one another,” said Allyson Ladd, communications specialist for Iowa Select Farms. “There was a tremendous amount of pride and support shown for our military families, and we were honored to be included.”

The Foundation received the Seven Seals Award for the annual Pork Care Package effort, which touches over 12,000 Iowa members of the Armed Services and their families. Every member of all Iowa military units received $40 worth of coupons good for various pork products, including fresh pork, ham, ribs, bacon, and ground pork, equating to $480,000 in free pork.
