The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is celebrating National Military Appreciation Month by re-launching its Grilling for Heroes campaign to increase awareness of safe grilling practices and raise charitable donations for military members and their families. Partnering with Food Network personality Sunny Anderson, PERC crowdsourced recipes from grilling enthusiasts across America and compiled them into the Grilling for Heros Cookbook that includes 50 original grilling recipes and is currently available to download at GrillingForHeroes.com in exchange for a goodwill donation. One hundred percent of all proceeds from the campaign will go to Hope For The Warriors, a nonprofit whose programs enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 wounded service members and their families.
At facebook.com/PropaneCouncil, propane industry members are invited to share photos and stories of up to 300 words about themselves, family members, friends, and colleagues who have served in the military or are currently supporting the U.S. Armed Forces. The stories will be featured in PERC's Grilling for Heroes campaign, and will create a public record of the industry's dedication the military.

"Grilling for Heroes has always been about celebrating our American pasttimes and honoring those who have served," said Roy Willis, PERC president and CEO. "The propane industry has a long history of serving in the military and supporting our armed forces here and abroad. We're honored to be able to collect and share our industry's stories and celebrate them through this new facet of the campaign."
