Schlotterbeck & Foss donated to Our Military Kids. “We discovered Military Kids when looking through Charity Navigator for highly ranked charities. For us that translates to being a fiscally responsible organization that utilizes the greatest possible percentage of dollars raised to benefit the target group served,” said Paul Dioli, CEO of Schlotterbeck & Foss. Schlotterbeck & Foss was founded in Portland, Maine in 1866. The company originated as a prescription apothecary shop and has evolved with technology to become the wonderful fresh sauce/dressing company it is today. Their sauces range from a Bacon Jam to Decadent Fudge. They have you covered from the appetizer to dessert. Through this generous donation, Our Military Kids will be able to help at least 10 more kids find their passion in extracurricular activities. “We (Schlotterbeck & Foss) opt to contribute during the December holidays to Our Military Kids. We feel really great about spending money on an organization that does so much for such an underserved group. We share this with our customers and business partners in lieu of mailing a holiday card. Each year we receive feedback about individuals who have been equally touched by the donation to your organization that we have made, because of their connection to someone in the military. We view this as a double win. You really are providing such a tremendous service for people who we owe so much to. We are grateful every day to live in a country that allows us choice and freedom and where we know there are people who have our backs, there to respond first when unexpected threats arise,” Paul proclaimed. Our Military Kids is very thankful for partnerships like this one that allow us to serve more families. Our families sacrifice more than most people realize, and the Our Military Kids grant program provides a tangible way to show our appreciation and give back to them.
