McDonald's Owners Team Up To Help Folds of Honor
Mike Darula, owner of 10 McDonald’s restaurants in the Twin Cities area, said, "We’re asking for our customers’ support as we help with education costs for families of our military and first responders. These families go through incredible hardship while sacrificing for our country and communities, but Folds of Honor helps spouses and children reach their dreams through education.”
There are more than 1 million disabled and fallen service members affected by
war, and nearly 2 million dependents of military heroes are adversely affected by war. It costs more than $9 billion to provide educational scholarships to the dependents of all fallen and disabled service members.
The donations made by these McDonald's restaurants will make a positive impact on a lot of people.
Since 2007, Folds of Honor has given out more than 40,000 educational scholarships nationwide totaling about $200 million.
This year, First responders’ dependents were added to the mission.
