Reading, PA — The Folds of Honor Foundation, an organization that provides academic support to families of fallen and disabled service members, is being supported for the third year running by Unique Pretzels Bakery, Inc.
For each sale of specially marked packs of the company’s Original Splits 11-ounce bags, Unique Pretzel reports it will donate five cents to the organization. During 2019, the campaign raised $6,600 and the snack maker anticipates an increase in donations this year as more retailers are participating.
“The economic hardships and uncertainty created by the coronavirus mean there will be an increased need for scholarships for the foreseeable future. This is especially true among the military families served by Folds of Honor Foundation, which may only have one source of income,” says Justin Spannuth, Unique Pretzel COO. “These families have made tremendous sacrifices for our country and we are very privileged to help support them.”
The Folds of Honor Foundation, which was started in 2007, has awarded approximately 24,500 scholarships to date, including giving out more than $22million in scholarships during the 2019-2020 school year, according to the snack maker.
