American Licorice Company, makers of SOUR PUNCH® Straws and RED VINES® candy, is partnering with the Kids In Need Foundation’s Second Responder® program to support victims of Hurricane Harvey and other US communities affected by natural disasters. At this point, we know first responders are in the area providing initial relief with food, water, and shelter. Our Second Responder® program exists to provide school supplies to students and teachers following natural disasters. We have experience in this type of relief after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Wilma and many other natural disasters.
When families struggle financially, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2017, we directly supported 6.2 million kids with new supplies.
