From Goya Beans to Rosary Beads Goya CEO Bob Unanue Heads to Poland Carrying a Special Delivery of Faith, Prayer and Hope for the People of Ukraine


One phone call and an offer of one single rosary from Shannon Haase of San Antonio, Texas turned into a donation of thousands and 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. Bob Unanue responded that he and his team would personally hand-deliver the rosaries. A special mass will be held in Poland to bring witness to this incredible gift of love, faith, and hope from the people of the United States.

“Darkness is the absence of light and evil is the absence of God. 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,” said Bob Unanue, President and CEO of Goya Foods.

With the help of Global Empowerment Mission (GEM), Goya Foods, through Goya Europa, its European facilities in Spain, and Goya Gives global initiative, 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.
