Folds of Honor uses funds raised to provide scholarships to families of soldiers injured or fallen while in service of our country. They have awarded 35,000 scholarships since their start in 2007. Just in the last year, Folds of Honor awarded 6,500 scholarships to spouses and children of fallen or injured service members.
Folds of Honor was nominated by CGS employee Thornton Dixon. Thornton is a 27-year Veteran and shared of Folds of Honor: “I saw the mission of this organization as selfless and noteworthy. There is no measure or price we can pay for those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. Those that died for our country and fellow man, in the cause for freedom. One simple blessing that Folds of Honor can make is to ensure families left behind are provided for. Providing scholarships for the children of fallen heroes is a small way to lessen the burden on those families. The folded flag symbol reflects their mission. It is a constant reminder of those who paid that price. It inspires them to help equip and educate those families in need.”
