Fort Thomas, KY (September 20, 2006) – My Family Farm, an award-winning, family-owned manufacturer of all natural and organic cookies and crackers, announced today that net profits generated from the sale of its products will benefit its new charitable partner – Prevent Child Abuse America. By entering into this partnership, My Family Farm is delivering on its promise to support organizations which consistently demonstrate their ability to help children and families. Contributions made to Prevent Child Abuse America – the nation’s leading organization committed to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children – will support its work with 100,000 families every year, helping to make sure that parents and caregivers have the knowledge and skills they need to provide children with healthy, safe and nurturing experiences.
“We did not get into this business for our own personal gain. We got into this business to offer great tasting products using healthy ingredients and at the same time support charities making a difference in the lives of children. We could not imagine a more natural partner than Prevent Child Abuse America to help achieve our family’s mission,” said My Family Farm Founder Annie Faragher Bennett.
This new partnership will be featured on the back panel of My Family Farm’s redesigned packaging and will also be included in new in-store demonstrations, coupon mailings, Internet campaigns and other consumer promotions.
“In order to truly enact change in our country and provide parents and children alike with healthy, safe and nurturing experiences, it will require the assistance, generosity and commitment of like-minded businesses and individuals, “ said Prevent Child Abuse America President and CEO Jim Hmurovich. “We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have met Annie and her ‘My Family Farm’ family; we are proud to call them partners.”
