Colt’s Manufacturing Company Continues its Support of Folds of Honor
WEST HARTFORD, CONN. (June 29, 2022) – Colt’s Manufacturing Company is proud to continue its support of its Veteran Charity Partner, Folds of Honor. Since June of 2015, Colt’s Manufacturing has been donating a portion of its proceeds from commercial and rifle sales to this organization.
Folds of Honor provides annual educational scholarships to military families of those service members killed or disabled while in active duty. Since its founding in 2007, Folds of Honor has awarded 35,000 scholarships, including over 6,500 in 2021-2022 alone. And an impressive 91-percent of all funds donated to this 501(c)(3) non-profit organization go directly to these scholarships.
“We owe such a great deal to all of our nation’s veterans and their families,” said Paul Spitale, Executive VP Commercial Business. “The sacrifices our veterans have made, and continue to make, defend and protect our nation and our freedoms. We at Colt’s Manufacturing can think of no better way to honor our fallen and disabled heroes than through our support of this noble organization.”
In addition to accepting donations, Folds of Honor holds various fund-raising events like Patriot Golf Days to honor military veterans and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our shared freedoms. A Patriot Golf Days’ one-time donation is distributed to Folds of Honor recipients and the PGA HOPE programs, local to the specific donors.
