West Bend, IA (August 08, 2020) – Country Maid, Inc has been supporting non-profit organizations for over 25 years. Now, we are furthering our mission of “helping others help themselves” by creating Country Maid Cares, our charitable giving program. With this new program, we can continue to give back, raise awareness, and encourage support for local causes.
In 2020, our charitable giving efforts are focusing on the importance of food and family. This year the campaign will support local food banks with two different fundraising efforts. These two efforts include the Country Maid cookbook and a local food drive.
The Flavor of Family cookbook features more than 200 heirloom recipes passed down through the generations. It is written by the Country Maid family, including employees and dealers from all around the country. Proceeds will be donated to local food banks.
In America, six out of seven children don’t get the food they need in the summer because they don’t have access to critical food programs offered by their schools. Our goal for the food drive is to help stock the pantries with enough food to feed 210 households at least one meal.
“Our communities are going through a lot right now with everything that’s happening in the world. Families may be struggling to get the food they need,” said Katelyn Helgevold, Marketing Project Coordinator at Country Maid and member of the Country Maid Cares committee. “Now more than ever we need our community to come together and give their support to those in need.”
