Hy-Vee to Honor Veterans And Support Active-Duty Military Members
Hy-Vee announced yesterday the start of a month-long campaign to honor our nation's veteran and active-duty military members in our communities and increase awareness of and support for organizations that serve veterans, active-duty members and their families.
Every November, Hy-Vee salutes and honors our nation's veterans and active-duty military through the "Hy-Vee Homefront Round Up" program at checkout and free Veterans Day breakfast, as well as an active effort to hire veterans and service members transitioning to civilian life.
Annually, Hy-Vee fundraises through their Hy-Vee Homefront Round Up fundraiser. Customers can round their purchase to the nearest dollar, or donate extra to this cause. Hy-Vee matches all donations up to $100,000, and this year, Coca-Cola has agreed to match up to $50,000 with all of the proceeds to be donated to Hope for the Warriors, Operation First Response, American Red Cross and the Puppy Jake Foundation.
Veteran's Day Dine-In Breakfast
On Veteran's Day (November 11) Hy-Vee will be honoring our area's veterans on Friday, November 11th by offering a free breakfast to all veterans and active-duty military members.
A buffet-style breakfast will be offered from 6am to 10am at Hy-Vee stores. All Dollar Fresh Market locations will offer free donuts and coffee.
In addition to free breakfast, veterans and active-duty military will receive 15% off their grocery purchase when they shop on Veteran's Day in store, online with promo code HOMEFRONT15, or at Dollar Fresh Markets.
