LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hain Celestial, a leading organic and natural products company with operations in North America providing consumers with A Healthier Way of Life™, today announced its partnership with Folds of Honor, a 501C-3 national nonprofit dedicated to providing educational scholarships to the families of fallen and disabled American service members. In celebration of the upcoming patriotic holiday, Hain Celestial is pledging their ongoing partnership with the noble charity by donating a portion of the proceeds from select Hain Celestial products (Live Clean, Sensible Portions, TERRA, and Garden of Eatin') to support this great American cause.
Founded by Major Dan Rooney in 2007, Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of service members killed or disabled during U.S. military service. More than 1.4 million dependents have been affected by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq alone, with 85 percent of those not qualifying for federal educational assistance. Without the help of civilian organizations like Folds of Honor, many of these families would not receive aid.
Starting September in retailers nationwide, consumers can feel even better about their purchases that support this great American cause. Select products from the beloved Hain portfolio of brands from Live Clean, Sensible Portions, TERRA, and Garden of Eatin' will be adorned with patriotic packaging and the Folds of Honor logo reiterating this important partnership. Hain Celestial's goal is to be able to continue to grow their commitment year over year so one day no child of a fallen or disabled service member ever has to worry about their education.
"Folds of Honor is proud to team up with Hain Celestial this fall and for the future to spread the word about our cause in providing educational scholarships to deserving families of military men and women," states Folds of Honor VP of Development, Larry Robinson. "Together, we will create a brighter future."
"We are honored to kick off a partnership with Folds of Honor to help empower and educate the families of America's service members," states Hain Celestial Chief Commercial Officer, Chris Boever. "This partnership came about as a way to give back across various Hain Celestial brands and we look forward to helping to provide a future full of upcoming opportunities."
