Grand Prairie, TX—Feb. 1, 2022— Today Republic National Distributing Company (RNDC) will launch its Black History Month “Legacy in the Bottle” campaign in partnership with some of its Black-owned beverage alcohol brands. Black History Month is a time to honor the significant contributions of Black Americans, past and present, to create a proud legacy of excellence.
During the month-long campaign, RNDC and participating suppliers will donate a portion of sales to help support UNCF (United Negro College Fund), the nation’s largest and most effective minority education organization.
Participating wineries and distilleries include Longevity Wines, Intercept Wines, Mermosa, FLO Wine, Uncle Nearest, Ten to One Rum, Brough Brothers, and Black Irish.
“RNDC is proud to support UNCF and appreciate the work of our associates to develop a great campaign alongside our suppliers,” said Bob Hendrickson, Chief Operating Officer of RNDC. “We want to continue to be a part of the work that makes our company, industry and communities at large more inclusive places.”
Follow RNDC via social channels throughout the month to hear from associates and suppliers about their successes and challenges within the industry and why representation is important. For more information about the Legacy in The Bottle campaign visit http://give.uncf.org/
