Chico, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2011
Through its partnership with Operation Gratitude, R.W. Knudsen Family® is proud to announce the donation of 200,000 sticks of Recharge® Natural Sports Drink Mix to deployed American Troops. Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit, volunteer-based Military Support organization, will include the Recharge drink mix packets in thousands of individual care packages sent to American service members in harm’s way. Over the past several months the partnership promoted the nonprofit organization and spread awareness of the need to express support for our Military men and women.
R.W. Knudsen Family kicked off the campaign with the first donation of 100,000 sticks of Recharge Natural Sports Drink Mix to ensure inclusion in the first round of care packages which shipped April 30. During the next three months the campaign used Facebook to raise additional donated product with every new “like” on the Recharge Facebook page. At the end of the campaign, an additional 100,000 sticks of Recharge Natural Sports Drink Mix were donated for a grand total of 200,000 sticks for troops overseas.
Every year Operation Gratitude holds a Patriotic Drive in late spring and a Holiday Drive in late fall during which thousands of local volunteers assemble a total of 100,000 care packages to ship to deployed Military members. Each care package is personally addressed and contains more than 50 donated items including snack foods, entertainment items, toiletries, and hand-written letters.
New from R.W. Knudsen Family this spring, Recharge Natural Sports Drink Mix is the latest addition to the popular natural sports beverage line, Recharge. Offering consumers a natural hydration option for their active lifestyle, this low calorie sports drink mix delivers essential electrolytes and optimal vitamins without added sugar, preservatives, or artificial colors. Recharge Natural Sports Drink Mix is sweetened with stevia and each stick contains only 10 calories.
