Flagship Food Group, the owner of 505 Southwestern line of salsas and sauces, is proud to announce its newest product – 505 Southwestern “All American Salsa.” Our All American Salsa, available in both Mild and Medium flavor profiles, is All Natural, Gluten Free and 100% grown and made in the USA with green chiles from Hatch Valley, N.M.
Most importantly, the All American Salsa line will help support Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. The partnership with WWP will help support and raise awareness of the needs of injured service members and their families. WWP is a national organization that provides 18 programs and services uniquely structured to nurture mind, body, spirit and economic empowerment.
Flagship Food Group will contribute 1% of the purchase price of every bottle of 505 Southwestern All American Salsa, with a minimum donation of $100,000 to WWP from May 1, 2013 through April 30, 2014. To raise further awareness for the cause, in the month of July, the brand will donate an additional $1 for every new person who “likes” 505 Southwestern on Facebook (www.facebook.com/505chile).
“We want the 505 All American Salsa to be the country’s ‘patriotic salsa’. If you love great salsa and want to support a great military charity at the same time, this is really the only salsa product you should buy. The 505 Southwestern brand could not be more proud to support such a worthy cause as Wounded Warrior Project,” explained Rob Holland, CEO, Flagship Food Group. “We hope to raise awareness of the needs of injured service members and their families and demonstrate support for our men and women in uniform who have given so much.”
Donations raised from the campaign will help WWP serve veterans and service members
who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness or wound, coincident to their military
service on or after September 11, 2001.
Over 50,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.
