“We feel thrilled to be partnering with Freddy’s, a brand that truly values supporting veterans and their families nationwide,” said Ben Leslie, Chief Impact Officer with Folds of Honor. “The funds raised throughout this month will go toward providing the children of military members with scholarships and other educational support.”

We’re genuinely inspired every day by the mission of Folds of Honor and are pleased to be able to support them through our partnership.”
