Build Community This Memorial Day-Founders Cigar Co.


Build Community This Memorial Day

North Oaks, Minnesota (May 24, 2022) Founders Cigar Company (Founders) is proud to announce that for this Memorial Day weekend, beginning Saturday, May 28th through Monday, May 30th, for every cigar purchased from their website, they will match with a 1 for 1 donation to Operation: Cigars for Warriors. Memorial Day weekend is about remembering our men and women in the armed forces that did not make it home. Founders would like to encourage you to take a moment, pause and reflect, and honor those men and women who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Founders Cigar Company proudly announced in October 2021 that it entered into a partnership with Operation: Cigars For Warriors to create an online “purchase and donation” promotion that will allow customers to “buy a cigar for the troops” - For only $8.50, a customer can purchase a cigar, which is then matched by Founders with an additional stick and sent every month to Operation: CFW’s Operations Center for inclusion in care packages.

Storm Boen, Chairman and CEO of Operation: Cigars for Warriors, said:

“It’s a great pleasure to expand our partnerships with retailers of every variety in support of our mission. We’re proud to collaborate with Founders to achieve significant benefits for their business, our inventory, and the warfighter who receives care packages.”

Brian Schmittdiel, Co-Founder said:

“As a U.S. Air Force veteran and currently serving in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, we are honored to partner with Operation: Cigars for Warriors. Our mission is to provide a connection through the means of cigars and CFW is an outstanding partner in providing this opportunity to serve our men and women downrange with premium cigars.”

Operation: Cigars for Warriors is a registered 501(c)3 charity operating nationwide whose mission is to provide premium cigars and cigar accessories to US troops serving in active combat zones, long-term deployments, and floats. Since 2012, over 1.2 million cigars have been donated to US servicemen and women, in addition to coffee, magazines, cigar lighters, and cutters.

Founders Cigar Company is a veteran owned cigar brand located in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis. Founders retails their cigars online and through other retail partnerships. At a time when the rest of the world was shut down, cigars served as a surprising catalyst for connection. Founders was created to empower others towards the same, drawing on the rich history of the American experience to deliver timeless smokes with distinctive profiles that fuel conversation, inspire friendship, and build community.
