Greensboro Police Join with Southern Breeze Sweet Tea to Strengthen Communities by “Sharing the Sweetness”

"GREENSBORO, NC – Tomorrow is National Iced Tea Day (yes, there is such a thing). To celebrate the occasion, the Greensboro Police Department and Southern Breeze Sweet Tea have partnered to #SHARETHESWEETNESS at two local supermarkets.

Representatives from Southern Breeze touring in the Sweet Ride truck and Greensboro police officers in the department’s Mobile Command Center will be at the Friendly Center Harris Teeter from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and at the Groomestown Road Food Lion from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30p.m. They’ll be sharing sweetness by giving away free samples of the zero-calorie sweet tea, introducing people to their neighbors, sharing sweet safety and crime prevention tips, and encouraging attendees to perform random acts of sweetness.

“We are happy to be a part of this event,” said Officer E.Y. Watkins, Crime Prevention Officer for the Greensboro Police Department. “This is a great way for us to encourage local residents to come out to meet more of their neighbors and first responders while sharing some sweetness in the community.”

“We couldn’t be happier about having the police department partner with us in Greensboro,” said Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Senior Vice President Bob Hackel. “Getting people together with officers in a fun and relaxed atmosphere like this is a great way to expand our #SHARETHESWEETNESS campaign to include important public safety tips. It was a natural partnership for us.”                   
The Southern Breeze Sweet Ride tea truck is visiting 10 cities in six weeks, from Pennsylvania to Florida, with a goal to #SHARETHESWEETNESS in every market. The tour was specifically planned so the truck could be in Greensboro on National Iced Tea Day to partner with the Greensboro Police Department. Everyone who stops by during the events on June 10 will be invited to sample Southern Breeze Sweet Tea, receive coupons and other prize giveaways such as tote bags, hats, flying discs and aprons.

In addition to the Sweet Ride truck, the police department will bring its Mobile Command Center, so that attendees can meet police officers and share ideas on how to make their neighborhood safer."
