In the second year of their partnership, GloriAnn Farms and Five Crowns Marketing gave $37,000 in charitable donations. The Tracy, Calif.-based corn shipper and its marketing partner donated the money to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
GloriAnn and Five Crowns started collecting in August, making a donation to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund for every case of sweet corn that was sold to participating retailers. The final donation was more than $18,500.
“[GloriAnn] has given many people an opportunity to give back. You will never be a success until you learn to give back. What we do for these soldiers is not charity, it is our responsibility,” said chairman of the fund, Arnold Fisher, in a news release.
The companies used the same system in October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to give over $18,500 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation through the companys’ Corn for the Cause Campaign.
“NBCF values GloriAnn Farms and Five Crowns Marketing’s partnership in sharing our mission of helping women now by providing free mammograms, education, support, and early detection services,” said Byron Vardilos, vice president of development operations for the foundation, in a news release.
