Marie Callender’s knows that home is more than a place. It's big hugs and joyful laughter. Home is warm memories and comforting homemade favorites served with those you love. Marie Callender's also knows that life can often take our loved ones far from home and away from all of the comforts and happiness it brings. That's why they're introducing the Comforts From Home Project. This is a program dedicated to bringing the heartwarming feelings, flavors, and favorites of home to those who miss it most.
Being a former military family ourselves, this hits a little close to home. I remember many holidays where Hubby was away. My brother also served in the military and all too often was overseas when the holidays came around. Not having those loved ones around , during this time of celebration, is hard....especially for those serving away from home.
Marie Callender's is starting an awesome program this fall season. For every participating Marie Callender's meal you buy, you have the opportunity to give back to those who serve and protect our country. Every time you enter a code, from a specially marked package of Marie Callender's meals or desserts, they will make a donation to USO2GO. This is a USO program that brings electronics, sports gear, books, games, and more to troops stationed in remote locations. I don't know about you, but this warms my heart and makes me want to help as much as I can.
The great thing is that buying these meals and inputing your participating code, is less than buying a pizza from Little Ceasar's. When the littles and I recently went to snag some Marie Callender's yumminess, we were able to find family meals for under $5. Stocking my freezer with some of these frozen goodies, are great for when the day gets away from me and it becomes dinner time before I know it. Us Mama's are busy and sometimes even our best laid plans go awry. Having a few saving graces in our freezer can save us from hitting the drive thru and breaking our budget....plus we can do some good this way too!
This program will continue throughout the holidays, ending on January 31, 2015. For every code you enter, Marie Callender's will donate 50 cents to the USO2GO Program. They have guaranteed a minimum donation of $100,000 and up to $250,000. A lot of brave men and women, serving our country, will be blessed by this program. They only limit is 5 entries per person daily.
