Packages From Home would like to thank Crown Royal for once again showing their support to PFH and heroic servicemembers both deployed and here at home. PFH teamed up with Crown Royal to kick off the brand's “Your Hero's Name Here” program, which honors a deserving American hero as the namesake for the July NASCAR race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On March 2, 2014, the search for the namesake of the 2014 Brickyard 400 officially launched!
PFH and Crown Royal honored a group of local Airmen from Luke Airforce Base with a VIP experience at the March 2 NASCAR race. In addition to sending 20 servicemembers to the race, two servicemembers were recognized as the inaugural program nominees and will have the chance to have the legendary Indianapolis race named in their honor. Individuals attending the race also had the opportunity to visit the Crown Royal tent and pack Crown Royal purple camo bags with donated food items which will be sent to our active duty heroes in combat zones.
Packages From Home wants to give a huge thank you to all 119 Fry's Food Stores and the community of Arizona for supporting our troops this past February during the Courageous Hearts campaign. Packages From Home was selected to be one of four organizations to benefit from Fry's Food Store's campaign to help give back to the individuals who have sacrificed so much for this country – our United States military personnel, retirees, veterans, and their families.
During the month of February, all 119 Fry's Food stores gave their customers the opportunity to purchase their very own Courageous Heart and donate their spare change at the cash registers. Fry's Food Stores and their amazing customers were able to raise approximately $280,000 total to be split between four nonprofit organizations.
