Schnucks campaign raises $1 million for Folds of Honor
Schnuck Markets Inc., customers and vendors pledged a gift of $1 million to benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to the spouses and children of veterans who were killed or injured in the line of duty. The Round Up at the Register campaign enabled customers to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar to benefit the foundation. One hundred percent of the funds will benefit Folds of Honor and will provide 200 educational scholarships.
“It impresses me how each year our customers, our teammates and our vendor partners come together to nourish the lives of the family members of injured and fallen service members,” said Bill Bradley, Schnucks chief marketing and communications officer. “Because of our customers’ immense generosity and our team’s commitment to the effort, we have been able to raise $4.2 million and fund 820 educational scholarships over the past four years.”
Last week Schnucks officials presented a check to Folds of Honor on the field at Busch Stadium prior to the St. Louis Cardinals game on Tuesday, July 20. Folds of Honor was established 14 years ago and has awarded more than 29,000 scholarships to military spouses and children since.
