Original Juan Launches Blanket and Coat Drive for Kansas City Rescue Mission10-Nov-2011 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE KANSAS CITY, KS – November 10, 2011 – Original Juan Specialty Foods (OJSF) is sponsoring a coat and blanket drive for Kansas City Rescue Mission (KCRM). This organization helps local poor and homeless individuals by providing them with basic supplies, shelter, rehabilitation, counseling, and life-skills training. They are in urgent need of new or gently used coats, blankets, hats, scarves, gloves and boots.
“Original Juan is always looking for ways to give back to the local community,” said Lindsay Howerton, vice president of marketing at OJSF. “It’s easy to get caught up in your own life and forget about those so desperate for basic essentials. We are humbled by the efforts of the Kansas City Rescue Mission.”
OJSF will be collecting donations at their retail outlet on 111 Southwest Boulevard in Kansas City, Kansas. The company will be collecting non-perishable food items, clothing, and toiletries through the end of November.
“I feel blessed that our company has been able to connect with these types of Christian organizations to support those in need,” said Joe Polo, owner at OJSF. “As we are nearing our 15th year in business in Kansas City, we feel the need to support our local community now more than ever.”
OJSF has been creating and manufacturing specialty sauces, salsa, snacks and dips for wholesale and retail customers since 1998. The company also provides co-pack/private label services to over 100 companies throughout the world. Original Juan products can be found in over 2,000 stores nationwide, as well as 13 other countries. The company has also been awarded over 250 product and civic awards.
“Men are lining up almost nightly now for a warm coat or jacket, gloves and other winter wear,” said Julie Larocco, chief development officer at KCRM. “We’re deeply grateful that Original Juan Specialty Foods has recognized this critical need and is helping connect their customers with KCRM in such a practical way.”
