The Albertsons Companies and Tom Thumb Foundation granted $100,000 to Folds of Honor. This grant was used to award 20 families in the state of Texas who have sacrificed on behalf of our freedom. One mother contacted Folds of Honor to thank them for providing the resources she needed to be able to send her two boys to the school of their choice. She writes, “I felt that they were about to get lost in the shuffle of a larger classroom setting. In their current school, they’re not just a number. They are accepted for just who they are and the teachers, staff, and coaches drive them to be their very best . . . I thanks God every day for putting [the boy’s school] in our hometown and for showing me Folds of Honor could help me get them there.”
We are proud to recognize the enormous sacrifice made by our Veterans, especially those who are injured while defending the freedoms we all enjoy. We are specifically focused on recent Veterans for post-September 11th conflicts. We raise funds and focus our donations to organizations working in our neighborhoods to:
- Support Veterans as they gain access to civilian employment
- Provide access to health care and support groups for our Veterans and their families
- Support the families of fallen heroes
Working with national and community-based organizations to reach our neighbor Veterans, we believe that their sacrifice and service should be honored and we aim to ease the transition back into civilian life.
