Dallas, TX — After celebrating the 13th annual Pork Rind Appreciation Day, Rudolph Foods Co., Inc., through its Southern Recipe and Southern Recipe Small Batch brands has donated $15,000 to partner charity Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund (GGAF).
Pork Rind Appreciation Day falls on the first Sunday in February and coincides with the Super Bowl, according to the company. GGAF is a non-profit organization that provides financial and medical assistance to former NFL football players. Both brands use the holiday to bring awareness to the work being done by GGAF.
“We absolutely love celebrating Pork Rind Appreciation Day with GGAF each year. For us, it’s a highlight just to be able to help this incredible organization and to bring a little more joy to today’s very deserving shoppers,” says Mark Singleton, vice-president of sales and marketing for Southern Recipe pork rinds and Advisory Council Member for GGAF. “After the cameras stop focusing on America’s pro-football players, their lives still carry on. However, they typically suffer physically, mentally and emotionally from the consequences of harsh play. This is an important way we’re able to give back.”
