In grateful recognition of the bravery, service and sacrifice of the nation’s military and first responders, New Holland recently announced the True Blue Salute program.
During the program period from Memorial Day, May 26, 2014, and continuing through July 5, 2014, New Holland will make charitable donations to Fisher House Foundation and extend a special equipment offer to active, reserve and retired military and first responders, as well as their immediate family members. The non-profit Fisher House Foundation provides a “home away from home” for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness or injury.
“New Holland is honored to show our appreciation and support of our military and their families through the True Blue Salute program and to contribute to the exceptional work being done by Fisher House Foundation,” said Mark Hooper, director of marketing for New Holland in North America. “It’s our way of saying thanks to our nation’s heroes who serve and protect us.” Since January 2012, New Holland has raised more than $1.2 million for Fisher House Foundation through True Blue Salute programs.
Donation made for each “thank you” tweet or post
New Holland is inviting everyone to show their appreciation to our nation’s heroes by tweeting a “thank you” at #truebluesalute or posting a “thank you” on the New Holland Facebook page. For each “thank you” tweeted or posted, New Holland will donate $1, up to $10,000, to Fisher House Foundation.
Donations to Fisher House Foundation can also be made by texting “salute” to 20222. By doing so, a one-time donation of $5 will be added to your mobile phone bill or deducted from your prepaid balance. Message and data rates may apply.*
