Utz® Quality Foods Supports Wounded Veterans

Teams with The Independence Corps & Spartan Alliance

HANOVER, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Utz® Quality Foods, LLC., its owners Mike and Jane Rice and The
Independence Corps & Spartan Alliance are pleased to announce the
donation of two Action Trackchair’s® to wounded Veterans from the
Afghanistan and Iraq Wars.

With its outdoor oriented treads, Action’s Trackchair® provides
significant mobility for wounded Veterans, giving them the ability to go
places where traditional wheel chairs are not capable. Having this
ability provides the Veterans with the means to get more control of
their lives, including resuming outdoor activities which they enjoyed
prior to being injured.

These Trackchair® donations benefited two service members, including:
Dustin Tuller of Milton, Florida and Jon Harmon currently at the Walter
Reed, National Military Medical Center. The donations were made during a
recent inspiring and moving event, held at the National Press Club in
Washington, D.C.

“Like all American’s, we appreciate the military service of Dustin
Tuller, Jon Harmon and all active and veteran service members,”
Mike Rice, Executive Chairman, Utz® Quality Foods, LLC. “Our
hope is that this donation may help them regain mobility they once

Through their 100% volunteer efforts, the members who make up The
Independence Corps & Spartan Alliance have been directly responsible for
providing all terrain wheelchairs to more than 1,200 severely injured

“We appreciate having Mike and Jane Rice, along with Utz Quality
Foods as partners in these recent Trackchair® donations,”
said Steve
Danyluk, co-President of The Independence Corps. “We
hope this donation inspires other like-minded individuals and
organizations to help our Veterans in need.”
