Red Gold has furthered its commitment to the Folds of Honor Foundation, donating $100,000 to the organization that provides scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members.
The tomato products producer for private label and Red Gold branded products has previously donated and brought awareness to the program through special packaging of its ketchup, and the supplier is continuing to donate proceeds from sales of its ketchup to the organization.
“We can see the impact that Folds of Honor has had on so many, and that has made this truly a blessing for our company and our employees to be a part of,” said Tim Ingle, senior vice president of Red Gold, and active wingman and board member for Indiana’s Folds of Honor chapter.
Folds of Honor has provided more than 28,000 scholarships, with 41% going to minority students, and has already awarded 3,500 scholarships this academic year. The latest donation of $100,000 will be used to create more scholarships.
“We are simply honored to have Red Gold as an amazing partner, who joined our cause less than ten months ago, and has been making a tremendous impact in raising the awareness of our mission with its new iconic Red Gold Folds of Honor ketchup,” said Lt Col Dan Rooney, who founded the foundation.
Red Gold branded ketchup has national distribution in retailers such as Costco, Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, Schnucks, Albertsons, Winn-Dixie, H-E-B and many more.
“A portion of proceeds from every bottle of Red Gold ketchup goes directly to the Folds of Honor foundation, making it the best choice to select an All-American brand,” said Ben Leslie, executive vice president, Folds of Honor. “Red Gold is truly the gold standard in everything tomatoes and we look forward to a growing and lasting partnership.”
