Parker’s Kitchen announced a new partnership with Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) to support local veterans in Georgia and South Carolina. The WWP helps provide services and programs to local injured veterans and their families at no cost to them, including vital career development and support as veterans transition to civilian life. Parker’s Kitchen customers can round up their purchases to the nearest dollar to benefit WWP and help warriors get the services they need.

“Parker’s Kitchen is incredibly proud to partner with Wounded Warrior Project to honor and empower America’s veterans and to help fuel these life-changing programs,” said Parker’s Kitchen founder and CEO Greg Parker. “This round-up campaign is just the beginning of our partnership with Wounded Warrior Project.”

From March 1 through July 4, proceeds from the Parker’s Kitchen round-up campaign will be donated to support WWP. Parker’s Kitchen will match 25% of each customer donation, the company said.

EG America, based in Westborough, Massachusetts, announced it will support the American Red Cross during Red Cross Month by hosting a nationwide in-store fundraiser. The company’s goal for the fundraiser, which begins March 1, is $250,000.

“We are happy to support the American Red Cross by raising funds essential for their mission of helping those in times of need," said John Carey, president and CEO of EG America. "During Red Cross month, we’ll encourage all our guests to consider making a donation to support this vital organization.”

Throughout the month of March, guests who visit EG America’s Certified Oil, Cumberland Farms, Fastrac, Kwik Shop, Loaf N’ Jug, Minit Mart, Quik Stop, Sprint Food Stores, Tom Thumb and Turkey Hill stores will have the opportunity to donate at checkout to the American Red Cross.

“Each year, we look forward to Red Cross Month as a time to honor our team who help ensure that no one faces emergencies alone,” said Anne McKeough, chief development officer at the American Red Cross. “We’re so grateful for generous partners like EG America, who encourage their customers to support our lifesaving mission this month. Thank you for standing with us when help can’t wait.”
