Fred Noe (Jim Beam's great-grandson) told me once that being able to do things for our service members and their families is one of the best parts of his job. I'm sure he was happy about this.
This holiday season, Beam Global Spirits & Wine (parent company of Jim Beam Bourbon) donated 1,000 meals to military families through its “Holiday Meals for Military Families” charity program. Working in partnership with Operation Homefront and nearly 30 valued business partners, Beam Global donated meals in three large military communities across the United States: Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Campbell, Kentucky; and Naval Station Great Lakes near Chicago from December 15 through December 17, 2010.
By providing pre-packaged meals for military families, Beam Global and its sponsors were able to ease the burden that service members often experience during the holidays.
