Nate’s Spreads Hope with Product Donations for National Honey Month
This September, we’re sharing the goodness of pure honey with others in celebration of National Honey Month. Through our Honey Gives Hope initiative, we donated more than 2,600 pounds of honey bottles and honey minis to people who otherwise might not have access to the goodness of our favorite all-natural sweetener.
While it’s our mission to make an impact, this year’s donations are especially meaningful, because we’ve been able to extend our outreach to communities with demand-based needs during this time of year.
When our friends at Kids Meals, Inc. told us that many of the preschool-aged children they serve rarely have access to pure honey, we knew we had to get involved. We donated more than 70,000 honey minis that will be distributed to kids who are too young to access school-based free meal programs.
We also recognize that public schools are deserving of encouragement and support during this busy time of year. We spread a sweet message of hope with a donation of more than 4,000 honey minis to the Coppell Texas Independent School District. The honey minis, which are perfectly portioned for on-the-go snacking, will benefit low-income students and families in the district.
In continuing our support for back-to-school season, we donated 3,000 honey minis to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to support the wellness goals of its community of students living with Type 1 diabetes who are returning to school. Nate’s also provided a financial donation to help fund diabetes research and therapy development.
September is also a busy month for families celebrating Rosh Hashanah. We donated more than 750 bottles of honey to families served by Jewish Family Services of Greater Dallas. JFS is a nonsectarian mental health and social services agency that has welcomed anyone through their doors regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or the ability to pay for more than 70 years.
We are also deeply committed to donating honey to local food banks, so we donated 270 bottles to The Storehouse of Collin County, which helps individuals and families facing food insecurity in the area.
At Nate’s, our work doesn’t stop with the orange label on your shelf. We are proud to steward our profits to help families and communities in need.
