L.G. Herndon Jr Farms is a proud partner of the Gary Sinise Foundation. Each Vidalia Onion season we ship our Vidalias in co-branded consumer bags (2lb, 3lb, 4lb & 5lb) that brings awareness to the amazing work of the Gary Sinise foundation. The timing of the promotions are the 2 weeks before Memorial Day and the 2 weeks before the 4th of July.

In 2023 we offered a high graphic display where retailers could showcase the partnership within their produce departments. Each consumer bag featured a unique QR code to drive shoppers to a dedicated site in partnership with the Foundation, where they could learn more about the many programs that are offered and the amazing work the Foundation does for miliary families, first responders, and veterans. Consumers had an opportunity through the site to make their own special donation to the Foundation. Herndon Farms donated 5% of the gross sales, up to $25,000 during the campaign, to the Gary Sinise Foundation for the benefit of the Foundation's area of greatest need.

John Williams, Director of Sales at Herndon Farms said, “We have had 2 great years of working with the Gary Sinise Foundation, and we’re looking forward to continuing to highlight the amazing work the foundation does across our country.”

The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of actor Gary Sinise, who has been an advocate of our nation’s defenders for nearly forty years. The Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. The Foundation’s programs—designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities—serve America’s heroes and their loved ones 365 days a year. To learn more, please visit
