`House of Jerky` Supports Troops in
Evansville, Indiana-based Company Teams with Soldiers` Angels
to Send Tasty Treats and Messages to Troops
The campaign, a dual effort with Soldiers` Angels, a non-profit organization supporting American military personnel deployed world-wide, arose from the soldiers` personal requests. "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," says House of Jerky owner, Ronald Hargett.
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
For as little as $4.99 for a 2-oz. package of jerky, customers can show their appreciation and support for the soldiers. As soon as there are enough donations to ship overseas, (HOW MUCH IN POUNDS?) the jerky is packaged and shipped to the 163rd, according to Janie Honeycutt, director of sales and marketing for HouseofJerky.com.
So far, House of jerky has made XXXX shipments totaling XXXXXX pounds/packages to the troops. "We thank the Redhawks for the work they perform every day for our military members and their families," Honeycutt says, "and hope our efforts will help them get through their deployment.”
House of Jerky invites the public to fill out cards and letters of encouragement provided at the store for forwarding to the troops along with the jerky donations. “We pay all shipping costs; it’s so little to do for those that are giving so much on our behalf," Hargett
says, adding that email messages are welcome too. "With the community`s support, the House of Jerky can continue to make a difference in the lives of service members and their families. We will continue to support them until they all come home.”
