You may know Ekrich for their yummy smoked sausage and meats, but there is much more to this company. According to Maressa Brown of The Stir "The company recently partnered with Operation Homefront, a nonprofit organization that provides emergency financial assistance -- like food boxes and gift cards to grocery stores -- to the families of U.S. service members and wounded warriors. So, if you bought a specially marked Eckrich product between May 1 and July 4, a portion of every one of those purchases (up to $200K) went to Operation Homefront. And earlier this summer, they also released a moving tribute video that highlights military family homecomings, set to the tune of Iron & Wine's "Love Vigilantes," originally by New Order."
It is great that companies get behind military families and this video is proof.
