Del Papa Distributing Co. has donated $10,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation to fund two educational scholarships for military families.
"This donation is a way for us to thank veterans and their families and to honor the sacrifices they have made for our freedoms," said Peter Williamson, vice president of business and community relations for Del Papa Distributing.
Budweiser has raised $6.5 million for Folds of Honor, providing more than 1,300 educational scholarships.
Folds of Honor, an Owasso, Okla.-based charitable organization, empowers military families by providing scholarships and assistance for children and spouses of military service men and women who were killed or disabled in the line of duty.
"We are committed to finding deserving scholarship recipients in our marketing territory," Williamson said.
