This list will be updated daily for Veterans Day 2020 as information becomes available. 

The following are organizations who are making a special effort to recognize Veterans Day by donating a portion of their sales to veteran causes or featuring special programs that give back to veterans and their families during the month of November 2020. Companies that are giving back to the military include:

Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant - Abuelo’s is teaming up with Honor Flight, an organization which transports America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. In all locations, Abuelo’s will donate $1 to Honor Flight for every Chile con Queso appetizer sold from Nov. 7. – Nov. 11.

BUBS Naturals - pays tribute to fallen Navy SEAL Glen “Bub” Doherty by donating 10% of proceeds from every sale to the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation, but on Veteran’s Day, the company donates 100% of proceeds. The Collagen Protein and MCT Oil Powder was founded by Glen’s best friend, Sean Lake, in Glen’s Memory - as a way to keep his legacy alive.

O’Charley’s Restaurant + Bar - Now through Veterans’ Day (November 11), each guest who donates $5 on their dine-in check will receive a $5 voucher toward a future in-store purchase. Guests who donate $5 online will get $5 off their next order with 100% of all donations going directly to beneficiaries, as all administrative costs are paid by corporate sponsors. The fundraiser benefits The Folded Flag Foundation, the non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships and support grants to the families of our country’s fallen heroes.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® -  Cracker Barrel announced it will donate a $10 Cracker Barrel gift card to Operation Homefront for each Country Fried Turkey Family Meal Basket sold in the month of November (up to $50,000), and the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Foundation will make an additional $50,000 donation to Operation Homefront – totaling up to $100,000 to support military families this holiday season.

Punchbowl E-Cards - the team at Punchbowl, a digital invitation and greeting card site, have created several free patriotic greeting card designs as a way to virtually give thanks to those who have served our country. Some cards include an option to upload your own photo as well. 

Casey’s General Stores - Throughout November, customers can help provide assistance and scholarships to veterans and their families through two nonprofit organizations, Hope For The Warriors and Children of Fallen Patriots, by rounding-up their purchases. In addition, $1 will be donated for every online or in-app purchase of a large pizza and 2-liter Pepsi® brand drink, up to $50,000 total.
