Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. announced a partnership with Hope for the Brave, a North Texas organization focused on building awareness and facilitating collaborations in housing, healthcare, education, and employment for veterans re-entering the community. Dickey’s Barbecue will be giving 10 percent of all sales of local whole meats and holiday meals to Hope for the Brave during November and December.
“Dickey’s Barbecue was founded by my grandfather in 1941 after he returned from the trenches of World War I,” says Roland Dickey, Jr. president and CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Inc. “Veterans and their service to our great country have always been a cause close to the hearts of the Dickey family. We’re so proud to support Hope for the Brave.”
In the next year, North Texas will welcome home 26,000 veterans and many will need assistance making the transition to civilian lives. Hope for the Brave provides a safety net for returning veterans by partnering with community organizations to facilitate support in multiple areas including housing, emergency life needs, employment solutions, and post-traumatic stress treatment.
In the months of November and December, participating Dickey’s Barbecue Pit locations will be giving 10 percent of all whole meat sales and holiday meals to Hope for the Brave.
