Historic Harpers Ferry has survived raids, battles, floods, and more. We, residents of Harpers Ferry, are dedicated to rebuilding our town and renewing our history. We now need you to contribute to our rebuilding work through the Harpers Ferry-Bolivar Historic Town Foundation.

The Harpers Ferry-Bolivar Historic Town Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit which needs you to contribute to help us rebuild and recover from this fire. The Town Foundation is dedicated to a sustainable future for our historic town and your contribution is tax-deductible. 

Right now, our goal is to raise $25,000 as a first step to recovery. The specifics are being discussed and figured out as you read this and this fund will be used to help our businesses, their employees, our residents, and our entire town mitigate our losses while repairs are made. Your donation is key to fund our recovery and you can be a part of rebuilding.



It is with pride and pleasure that Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® partners with the USO to help troops and military families.

Since 1941 the USO has lifted the spirits of America’s troops and their families around the world. This May is Military Appreciation month, dedicated to drawing attention to our service members’ great sacrifices. So we’re honored to support the USO and their efforts to create simple moments of joy that military personnel and their families can cherish for years. 

Our Four-Star Salute™

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc. has always dedicated itself to Pleasing People, whether it's with our homestyle cooking and hospitality or with all the unique collectibles found in our Old Country Store.  Part of that effort is acknowledging our employees for being the best they can be and we symbolize that achievement by adding a star to their apron.  An apron with four stars signifies that an employee exceeds our highest standards for knowledge, dedication, and service.  Calling this year’s charity auction our Four-Star Salute™ is the highest compliment we can give, an acknowledgement of the great work and sacrifices our service members and their families make for our country.

By working with the USO and its mission to comfort, connect, and entertain military families, we can take our pursuit of Pleasing People to the next level.

How You Can Help Cracker Barrel and the USO Support Military Families

We’re excited to support the USO through the 2015 Four-Star Salute™.  We’re asking friends and supporters to help us boost fundraising for military families by sharing our social media messages on your social media channels.  And we also hope you will take a moment for yourself to explore our exciting auction items, bid on your favorites and help make this effort truly special for military families.

But that’s not all.  In addition to the online charity auction component, website visitors can enter online to win a year of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s homestyle meals, free!  Plus, by sharing the news about the Four Star Salute on their social media accounts, entrants can receive additional sweepstakes entries.  See http://www.fourstarsalute.org/sweepstakes for more info!
