THE HOLIDAY SEASON SERVES UP A SWEET TREAT
WITH AN EVEN SWEETER STORY
True Blue Candy Cane Company Donates 25 Percent of Profits to the
Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation
True Blue’s Founder a College Student with a Cause
WASHINGTON—This holiday season, True Blue Candy Cane Company offers a new take on an American classic: red, white and blue candy canes for a cause. Twenty-five percent of profits from the candy canes benefit the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, which assists children who have lost a parent in the Marine Corps by allowing them to pursue higher education.
In 2009, Alexander Lynn—just 18 at the time—vowed to help families of U.S. service members after his cousin returned home from a 4 and a half year assignment in the Marine Corps. It was just two weeks before Christmas, and Alexander glanced at his Christmas tree laden with candy canes, and the idea of True Blue Candy Canes dawned on him.
“Candy canes are a cornerstone of American tradition, and what better way to honor that tradition than to give back to the those who defend this country,” said Alexander. “The True Blue Candy Cane is a product that fellow Americans like myself can be proud of.”
Now a college student at the University of Miami in Florida, Alexander not only wants to help service members and their families, but also American workers. “Unlike most candy canes on the market, True Blue Candy Canes are produced and manufactured right here in the U.S. of all-American ingredients.”
Each True Blue Candy Cane is handcrafted by Hammond’s Candies of Denver, and is sure to inspire the holiday spirit with a traditional peppermint flavor. True Blue Candy Canes can be purchased online just in time for the holidays at TrueBlueCandyCanes.com.
