We are excited to announce that KFC and AMPEX Brands are supporting Snowball Express through their “Round Up” Campaign at 179 participating KFC Franchise locations. Snowball Express is extremely thankful to AMPEX Brands for their tremendous support and proud to have AMPEX Brands as our partner in supporting the children and families of those who have sacrificed so significantly for our freedom. Please refer to the list of participating locations. If you live in Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, or West Virginia, we encourage you to enjoy a meal (or two or three….) at one or more of these locations and support Snowball Express in the process.
” It is our duty to help the children of those who have fallen while serving our country and protecting our way of life so that we can raise our heads proudly and show the world that “We Take Care of Our Own”. These children will endure weeks and years of loss and suffering because they will grow up without the love, care and guidance of a parent. We want to be there for them like we are for our own kids, so they can grow with the memory of thousands of helping hands nurturing and guiding them through their darkest hours. Our Ampex Family is proud to be a part of Snowball express”.
President & CEO, AMPEX Brands

Over the past decade, true American Heroes, the men and women of the United States Military and their families, have made and continue to make extraordinary sacrifices to protect our freedom. That’s why we started Snowball Express. Each year with the help of our presenting sponsor, American Airlines, and our other wonderful sponsors and volunteers we are able to bring together children of our fallen military heroes from all over the world for 5 days of making new memories and honoring their parent’s sacrifice.
