Sioux Honey Association Co-op’s Share Sweetness Tour Covers 4,000 Miles

Sioux Honey Association Co-op Covers 4,000 Miles
Continues to Share Sweetness in Home Stretch

After 4,000 miles and acts of kindness throughout four states, the Sioux Honey Association Co-op’s “Share a Little Sweetness” tour, which focuses on giving back to communities throughout its 10-week duration, celebrated its halfway mark in Oregon and will head for home in Sioux City, Iowa, in four weeks.

The 20-foot sampling truck’s next stop is Friday, Aug. 25 in Washington at the Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival. The tour kicked off on July 10 in Longmont, Colo., and will conclude in Sioux City, Iowa, on Sept. 19.

To commemorate the first half of our “Share a Little Sweetness” tour, we’re looking back on some of our favorite acts of kindness thus far:

Colorado:

  • Our Share Sweetness crew visited the Children’s Hospital of Colorado to donate stuffed teddy bears and 100 “cheer cards” with special messages written by the Colorado community. The crew also shared honey samples, recipe books, and tote bags with family members and hospital staff.

Arizona:

  • Donated water bottles to the Phoenix Rescue Mission during a “code red” heat wave.
  • Shared honey bee educational kits created by the National Honey Board to Treasures 4 Teachers, a nonprofit, member-based organization that assists educators by providing school supplies at a lower cost.

California:

  • Donated 500 homemade, healthy, honey biscuit dog treats made with Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey to dogs at the San Diego Humane Society and the Imperial Beach SurfDog competition. Treats where made with El Cajon-based Marley’s Gnarly Canine Cookies.
  • With the help of Office Depot, the Share Sweetness crew donated school supplies to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater San Diego. To find out more about the Share Sweetness Tour, including a complete schedule of stops and recipes, visit www.sharesweetness.com.

About Sioux Honey Association Co-op

The Sioux Honey Association Co-op began nearly 100 years ago by beekeepers with a passion for pure, honest honey. That passion remains today, and every Sioux Honey brand – Aunt Sue’s and Sue Bee– is held to the standards set in 1921, standards our hundreds of independent beekeepers have helped us keep. Together, we continue to share a little sweetness by educating consumers on bee-friendly behaviors, sharing recipes and, of course, delivering that same, delicious honey.
