Folds of Honor is a small nonprofit organization that was started by Major Dan Rooney. They provide scholarships for the children of disabled or fallen service men and women. It’s a great cause to provide an academic foundation to someone whose family member sacrificed life and limb for our country and our freedom.
The foundation came about when Major Rooney watched a fallen military hero come back into the states and get unloaded out of an airplane with a flag draped over the coffin. In the photo that was taken, Major Rooney saw a four-year-old boy standing beside his father’s coffin. He realized that the boy in the picture will never get to play catch or learn life lessons with his dad. Because education is one of many areas of need for these children, he decided to create Folds of Honor.
Wisler Plumbing is proud to partner with Stand to Honor, which is a secondary campaign of Folds of Honor. The Stand to Honor campaign is looking to raise a total of $1 Million by May 1. We’re a small piece of that campaign and our goal is to raise $5,000, which is enough to buy a scholarship for one child. Wisler Plumbing will match the contributions totaling up to $5,000 on May 3. We would love to be successful in reaching the $10,000 mark for Folds of Honor, which would be enough to provide scholarships to two children.
This cause has a very special meaning for us at Wisler Plumbing. There’s a wide history of what the word ‘Dad’ means to us here in the organization. As I’ve listened to the stories of recipients of these scholarships, ‘Dad’ definitely means a lot to them as well. We encourage you to visit our Wisler Plumbing Facebook Page to learn more. That’s where you can see how far we are towards reaching our goal, along with an easy way to contribute. We want to thank you for joining us to support this cause.
