Reading, PA — Unique Pretzel Bakery, Inc. is continuing its support of Folds of Honor, a foundation that provides scholarships to spouses and children of fallen and disabled service members, the company reports.
Through August, with every purchase of specially marked packs of Original “Splits” pretzels, Unique Pretzel will donate five cents to the organization. During 2019, the program raised $6,600, an amount the company expects to surpass this year.
“Families have been trapped inside or separated by mandated stay-at-home orders during the last few months. As we return to the outdoors and celebrate our independence with our families, it is important to remember the service members who have and continue to fight for our freedoms. This is especially true for the families that have suffered the loss of a fallen soldier or who have a family member that was disabled in the line of service,” says Justin Spannuth, Unique Pretzel COO. “These families have made tremendous sacrifices, and our program demonstrates our appreciation and helps individuals across the nation support our service members and their families.”
The initiative is just one of many the company runs throughout the year to support local and national organizations. These activities include supporting multiple COVID-19 programs such as Unique Pretzel’s Giving with a Twist program, which supported multiple charities and non-profits; donating product to local food banks; and partnering with Bikes & Beers to support social distancing virtual bike rides, according to the company.
