Teach Your Family the Importance of Giving Back This Holiday Season by Sending a Katy’s Goodness™ Cookie Care Package in Support of Military Veterans
For each veteran receiving a gift package, Katy’s Goodness donates proceeds to a military veteran support organization
(Chicago, IL – November 20, 2014) – Embrace the season of giving with Katy’s Goodness™, a brand proudly supporting military veterans for the past decade. You can show your family’s appreciation by sending a Katy’s Goodness Cookie Care Package to sweeten this holiday season for our nation’s veterans.
The care packages are part of the Katy’s Goodness campaign: “Thank a Deserving Military Veteran.” This initiative will deliver care packages to two million military veterans and donate $3 million to veteran support organizations. The campaign represents the brand’s latest initiative to support American military veterans’ issues and organizations.
Between this Holiday Season 2014 and Veterans Day 2015, people can thank a military veteran by ordering a Katy’s Goodness Cookie Care Package to be shipped directly by the cookie maker to one of America’s 22 million military veterans. For every purchase, Katy’s Goodness will donate funds to its nationally recognized charity partners: Easter Seals, Student Veterans of America, Warriors in the Workplace, and Support Military Foundation. Proceeds will be allocated to local affiliates, going back to the communities where the cookie care package purchasers live.
A cookie care package costs $30 for the care package and the shipping. It is comprised of six packages of Katy’s Goodness My OH Mega® Cookies, a thank you card, and printed information on organizations that support America’s military veteran community with housing, jobs, education, and medical and mental health services. Each Katy’s Goodness bag includes about a dozen cookies. Once a care package is purchased, Katy’s Goodness will automatically ship the package to a military veteran on behalf of the purchaser. The gift is sent anonymously and arrives unannounced. The last few months of the year make up what is referred to as the “Season of Giving.” As the holidays draw near, Americans are looking to find ways to give generously and they can do just that by donating and gifting a Katy’s Goodness Cookie Care Package to a military veteran.

Katy’s Goodness My OH Mega cookies are available in flavors you have come to love — Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut, Chocolate Chunk, and for the non-chocolate lovers, Country Fruit and Cashew Butter. Not only do they taste great, but they keep it real by being made with ingredients you can read. They are all-natural, 100% whole grain and high in protein, rich in fiber and an excellent source of Omega-3. Katy’s Goodness My OH Mega cookies are available online at KatysGoodness.com, and featured at stores across America, retailing for about $4.50 per bag. Retailers include Shop & Save Market, Cub Foods, Food Country USA, and Woodman’s Foods. Whether purchased online or at retail, all product sales – not just veterans’ cookie care package sales – generate funds for charity partners’ local affiliates.
“Our ‘Thank A Deserving Military Veteran’ campaign provides families who are looking to give back during the holidays a great way to positively affect an American military veteran, all while supporting essential programs for our veterans and their families,” said Kathleen Frantz, founder of Katy’s Goodness. “It is our hope that the care packages will brighten a military veteran’s holiday season and let them know how much we appreciate their service.”
