ATLANTA, Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With a new national survey showing that 65 percent of Americans said spending time with family makes it feel most like the holidays, The Honey Baked Ham Company LLC today announced a campaign to bring a "taste of home" to the men and women that will sacrifice time away from their families this year to serve their communities. HoneyBaked Ham employees will deliver over 100 meals to first responder work locations across the country during the holidays. As a part of the holiday campaign, HoneyBaked Ham is bringing much needed support and a "taste of home" to first responders through collaboration with the Gary Sinise Foundation - an organization that has received national recognition and praise for its support of veterans and first responders. Through the Gary Sinise Foundation, HoneyBaked Ham will donate 250 hams and turkeys to families of fallen soldiers and first responders. Additionally, HoneyBaked Ham will raise awareness for the Foundation and its mission by promoting and encouraging support with an opportunity to donate in stores. Proceeds will directly benefit Gary Sinise Foundation's First Responders Outreach program which provides funds for equipment, training, and wellness for first responders and their families. "First responders make so many personal sacrifices to serve all of us every day," said Molly Kesmodel, senior vice president of HoneyBaked Ham's store operations. "Many of them will be spending time away from their families during this special season of the year and we want to show our appreciation for all they give up to be there in our times of need." "We are pleased to have the support of HoneyBaked Ham to raise awareness and funds for our much needed first responders outreach program all across the country," said Judith L. Otter, executive director of Gary Sinise Foundation. "We hope all HoneyBaked Ham customers honor the tremendous service and sacrifice of their local first responders this year and make a donation to help us support them." The Omnibus survey of 1,000 Americans, recently conducted by GFK, also found that 90 percent of the respondents believe that any place can feel like home with the right people and great food. Another 25 percent said they feel most in the holiday spirit when eating a delicious meal.
