Jersey City, New Jersey-based Goya Foods and Bob Unanue, CEO, have pledged to donate and hand-deliver rosaries to bring hope and prayer to Ukrainian refugees in Poland. Unanue was inspired to make this donation after receiving a phone call and an offer of one single rosary from Shannon Haase of San Antonio, Texas.
This has turned into a donation of thousands of rosaries from her prayer community in hopes that Goya would be able to deliver the miracle of the rosaries to the people of Ukraine personally. A special mass will be held in Poland to bring witness to this gift.
“Darkness is the absence of light, and evil is the absence of God,” Unanue said. “With the miraculous gift of these rosaries from these beacons of light with prayer, love and hope, we will pierce the darkness and inspire the leaders of our world to reject evil and move closer to God.”
With the help of Global Empowerment Mission, the company will continue to distribute hundreds of thousands of pounds of food, water and supplies as needed to Ukraine and Poland, where many refugees are fleeing. With the gift of these rosaries from faithful Americans, Goya seeks to fulfil Goya Cares’ mission to nourish the soul.
