The proceeds from selling our food seasoning and BBQ rubs go directly to Homes For Our Troops. We support our troops!
Many generations in my family have bravely served in the various branches of the U.S. Military Services. During WW II, my father and his four siblings were all serving. I cannot imagine what my grandparents must have been going through during those years waiting to hear from their children when the only source of communication was by letter. Months would pass by without any word...and newspapers and radio became the only source of reliable information. The same existed for all families across our nation; everyone knew someone who was serving.
Today again, many families are either directly or indirectly personally invested in the war on terrorism. Parents, wives, husbands and children at home pray everyday to keep their loved ones safe. We stay busy going on with our daily routines but stay constantly aware of the inherent risks attached to war.
In an effort to be supportive of my son and help the severely injured returning troops, I am donating the net proceeds from the sales of my family's own seasoning, Uncle Gunny's Secret Seasoning & Rub. Homes For Our Troops will be the recipient. This charity is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 by John Gonsalves, a construction supervisor from Massachusetts who wondered what was being done for returning servicemen and women with serious disabilities. HFOT is committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with severe injuries since September 11, 2001. Donations of money, building materials and professional labor culminate in the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.
The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans.
