It was announced today that NASCAR driver Ryan Newman and Oral-B have teamed up with Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit organization that assists post-9/11 service members, to help veterans reintegrate into the civilian workforce.
As part of this program, Newman will participate in a Hope For The Warriors partnership celebration at the Oral-B Built in the USA Stage in Daytona, Fla., prior to Saturday’s Coke Zero 400 race. He’s also encouraging fans to buy Built-in-the-USA products.
“I am thrilled to join Oral-B in its commitment to supporting the American workforce and partner with a brand that values the excellence of American engineering,” said Newman. “The best part is that the Oral-B manual toothbrush I use every day – the Pro-Health All-in-One – is built in Iowa City, Iowa. When you buy American-built products, it represents people; you are giving them a job and there’s a lot of pride in that.”
The Oral-B plant in Iowa City, the largest toothbrush plant in the world, employees 500 workers, including U.S. military veterans. The company is committing a portion of the sales now through Veterans Day to help veterans get back into the US workforce.
