MISSION BBQ Customers Donate $350,420 to Wreaths Across America

PR Newswire

GLEN BURNIE, Md., and COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine, Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, MISSION BBQ announced the donation of $350,420 to national nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA). This contribution was made possible thanks to the generosity of Our Customers and their support of the American Heroes Cups. The donation will help to sponsor over 23,000 veterans' wreaths to remember our fallen U.S. service members during the 2020 holiday season.

MISSION BBQ Founders Bill Kraus (far left) and Stephen "Newt" Newton (far right) presented at check for $350,420 to Wreaths Across America today at their Glen Burnie, MD restaurant. WAA Founder Morrill Worcester, Executive Director Karen Worcester and Chairman of the Board Wayne Hanson were there to accept this generous contribution that supports the year-long mission to REMEMBER. HONOR. TEACH.

"We wouldn't have the freedoms we have today if it wasn't for our nation's veterans who stepped up for us time and time again," said Kraus and Steve Newton, founders of MISSION BBQ. "We are humbled by the wonderful support of our customers and all the good that will be done for our so deserving American Heroes in remembering their lives, their service and their sacrifices."

Wreaths Across America is best known for its annual wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, their mission is to Remember our fallen U.S. veterans, Honor those who serve and Teach the next generation the value of freedom. In addition to Arlington, Wreaths Across America coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 2,100 locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.

"The team at MISSION BBQ demonstrate how everyone can play a part in the communities where they live and work. They are providing jobs, a gathering place for stories to be told, and good food to be eaten all across this country, all while giving back locally," said Karen Worcester, Executive Director, Wreaths Across America. "This mindset aligns perfectly with the Wreaths Across America mission and we are so proud to have them as a partner in supporting it."

American Heroes Cups are available year-round, retailing at $3.99 with $2 of every cup purchase donated to a charity supporting national military charities and local first-responders. Customers are encouraged to bring back their American Heroes Cup on return visits to the restaurant and receive $.99 refills.

About MISSION BBQ:
