Keeping the Faith Memorial Poppies

Keeping the Faith recognizes and salutes our brave American Veterans and Military personnel every day. During the month of November, we demonstrate our respect and remembrance by wearing the vivid, blood-red Memorial Poppies. Poppies, flowering in the spring of 1915 on the battlefields of Belgium, France and Gallipoli, have become synonymous with great loss of life in war. Now the scope of the Poppy, and its connection with the memory of those who have died in war has been expanded to helping the living, too.

Gecko’s Grill & Pub and S’macks Burgers & Shakes invite you to proudly join us in honoring our living and deceased Veterans by wearing a commemorative gift from Keeping the Faith, the blood-red Memorial Poppy. Your generous donation will benefit Operation Second Chance, which serves our wounded, injured and ill combat veterans. As long as Americans continue to spill their blood in defense of freedom, we will carry the torch of appreciation, and honor the tradition of wearing Memorial Poppies.

Operation Second Chance supports Veterans and their families while they recover in military hospitals, and is dedicated to promoting public awareness of the many sacrifices made by our Armed Forces. For more information, please visit: www.operationsecondchance.org/index.php

No Kid Hungry

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.

They’re ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, government officials, nonprofits, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These partners work together, implementing solutions that break down the barriers that keep kids from healthy food.
