Tim McGraw & Fritos Partner Up For Non-Profit Organizations


Tim McGraw and his charity Neighbor’s Keeper Fund have teamed up with Fritos to donate a total of $500,000 to non-profit organizations in 34 cities across the US for his “Southern Voice” tour.

“Fritos brand corn chips have been part of American family traditions and community gatherings for generations,” said Christy Kulka, Fritos Marketing Manager, Frito-Lay North America. “It was natural to partner with Tim McGraw and his Neighbor’s Keeper Fund as they are focused on bringing communities together. The Fritos brand has worked with Tim to hand pick each nonprofit that we will support so we can impact as many families as possible.”

The organizations chosen for the donations stay consistent with the theme of uplifting families. The Neighbor’s Keeper Fund has a main focus on children’s initiatives, and funds the work of existing charitable groups who are already working in areas where relief is needed.

“My wife and I believe it’s imperative for neighbors to help to improve communities, and Fritos is stepping up to do just that,” said Tim McGraw. “In conjunction with my Neighbor’s Keeper Fund, the Fritos brand’s generous donation will help children and families thrive across this great country.”

This is the second time Fritos has partnered with Tim McGraw. In 2008, it launched the limited edition Tim McGraw Spicy Jalapeño flavored Fritos corn chips and was the official snack of the “Live Your Voice” tour.
