Three Dog Bakery Honors Returning Military with Veteran's Day Promotion
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation honors its servicemen and women on Veteran's Day, November 11th, Three Dog Bakery and man's best friend are doing their part by providing military veterans with service dogs. Three Dog Bakery will donate to FISH – Food Industry Serving Heroes – an amount equal to 15 percent of the total sales of its products, whether through its bakeries, its retail outlets or online, made on Veteran's Day. The company will also contribute a year's supply of its dog food and treats to the recipients of its service dog initiative.
