FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
House of Jerky Supports Troops in Iraq
Evansville, Indiana-Based Business Raises Funds with Soldiers` Angels
Evansville, Ind., Mar. 20, 2008 — American troops in Iraq can expect good things from Evansville, Indiana this year. The newest House of Jerky location in the Evansville Marketplace is proud to announce its campaign to send jerky donations to support U.S. soldiers deployed to Iraq.
For 2008, House of Jerky has pledged to match all customer donations made in the store. As soon as there are enough donations to ship overseas, the jerky will be packaged and sent to the Redhawks, the men and women from the Indiana National Guard`s 163rd Field Artillery serving in Iraq.
According to Ronald Hargett, owner of House of Jerky, the campaign with Soldiers` Angels, a non-profit organization that supports American military personnel deployed world-wide, promises to be very exciting.
"With the community`s support, the House of Jerky can continue to make a difference in the lives of service members and their families," Hargett said.
"It is a great idea to send jerky to a soldier, not only because of the nutritional quality, benefits and convenience, but also because we hear from many soldiers that jerky is what they like to receive most."
In one such letter to House of Jerky, American soldier Christopher McLamb wrote, "I would just like to thank you for the Soldiers` Angels gift package you sent to our small unit in Kuwait. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your warm-hearted gift and your support."
For as little as $4.99 for a 2-oz. package of jerky, customers can show their appreciation and support for the soldiers overseas.
"We thank the Redhawks for the work they perform every day for our military members and their families," said Janie Honeycutt, director of sales and marketing for HouseofJerky.com. "We hope our efforts will help the troops and their families get through their deployment.”
All it takes is a little compassion to brighten a soldier`s day, and the people at Evansville`s House of Jerky will go above and beyond donations to show the troops they care.
“We will also send the soldiers cards and letters that customers can fill out at our store, and we pay all shipping costs," Hargett said. "It’s so little to do for those that are giving so much on our behalf. We will continue to support them until they all come home.”
