Charitable Giving with Hickory Farms

I was so happy to spend time with my cousins and aunt this year. There were 19 of us. It was loud, chaotic, and fun. So thankful.

Keeping traditions alive, we opened our Hickory Farms gift pack. There was a huge fight over the last piece of Summer Sausage. Because… who doesn’t love the Summer Sausage? Last month, when I gave away a Hickory Farms gift pack, I started thinking about our family traditions and what was important to me. It isn’t just about Summer Sausage anymore. It’s about giving, sharing and being together.

No Kid Hungry (Share our strength)

I had no idea that Hickory Farms had a partnership with Share Our Strength, a leading national non-profit organization that works to stamp out childhood hunger. For each Party Planner gift box sold this holiday season, Hickory Farms will donate $5 to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. To date, Hickory Farms and its customers have donated $2.5 million.

Hickory Farms also has eight products that they offer free shipping to military APO and FPO addresses, including the “Home for the Holidays” and “Beef Hearty Hickory” gift baskets. Think about these gift ideas if you’re looking for a way to give back and share with great organizations such as Share Our Strength. No child should ever go hungry.

Compensation and products for review were provided by Hickory Farms via MomTrends. I received a free sample of the product for the purpose of this review and to facilitate a giveaway. The opinions expressed herein are mine and are not indicative of the opinions of Hickory Farms.

Holiday Traditions with Hickory Farms

One of my favorite holiday memories involves my grandfather. Every Christmas, we’d drive thirty minutes to a neighboring town to buy him a Hickory Farms gift pack for Christmas. His favorite was the Summer Sausage and strawberry hard candies. He kept a small knife in his pocket. He’d take it out, slice a piece off with that knife, and hand it to me with a salt cracker. He’d also sneak a candy to me when no one was looking. Such a simple memory, but priceless to me. continued
