Akron -- Country Pure Foods, one of the nation's top independent juice processors, continues to demonstrate its commitment to United States military families by participating in the Wounded Warrior Project, a national fundraising organization dedicated to raising awareness and enlisting the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.

"As we look to give back this holiday season, we are proud to contribute to the Wounded Warrior Project," said Country Pure Foods CEO Raymond Lee. "Our military personnel and their families make the greatest personal sacrifice to protect our country so we are able to enjoy the freedoms that we so often take for granted. We wanted our company and our employees to focus on helping real heroes, during the time of their greatest need and to show our appreciation for their service. "

Through corporate donations and voluntary drives, at the company's Akron, Ohio; Ellington, Conn.; Deland, Fla., and Houston, Texas, plants, Country Pure Foods generated approximately $30,000 in contributions to the Wounded Warrior Project. This is in addition to more than $100,000 Country Pure Foods has raised in previous years for the Intrepid Fund, which also focuses on helping wounded military service men and women and their families. More than 200 employees, about 54 percent of the company's workforce, contributed to the donation.
