We are thrilled to announce that our “Salute Our Veterans and Military Personnel” bags, the package featuring a young girl and soldier, have been a catalyst to contribute $100,000 to the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore.
Patriotic spirit is part of our tradition at the hive. Our CEO Mary Anne Ketelsen, or Queen Bee as we affectionately call her, is a longtime supporter of the United Services Organization (USO). The USO is the nation’s leader in supporting the U.S. military and their families throughout their time in uniform, serving as a source of comfort and keeping them connected to their loved ones.
It’s also an immense honor to receive praise from Elaine Rogers, president and CEO of USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore. Rogers said the 2019-20 partnership with Mister Bee Potato Chips “has made a significant impact in helping us provide the critical programs and services to support members of the military and their families.”
While we celebrate this donation, our ultimate goal is to produce 250,000 specialty chip bags to further support the military community, which is a year-round commitment to us.
We wouldn’t be able to show our thanks if it weren’t for our Mister Bee supporters. During November and December 2020, we will be providing free shipping on online orders of our patriotically-themed bags. They are also available year-round at all retailers carrying Mister Bee products. We invite you to keep honoring our nation’s heroes in the most tasteful way we know.
