B&B Beverage Co. awards scholarship money to military families through Folds of Honor Foundation

(WTVM) -

Two deserving military families are set to be awarded funding by the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Thanks to the B&B Beverage Company, the families will receive $5,000 each in scholarship money.

The Folds of Honor Foundation awards families of whose loved ones have died or have been disabled in service.

"Our community is especially touched by this, with our large military population," explains David Lewis, President of B&B Beverage Company. "Since the deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq over the last number of years, 1.5 million dependants have been affected. When something happens to the soldier, the educational dreams of the dependents are greatly affected, and this gives them a chance to complete their educational dreams."

The company hopes that by supporting the Folds of Honor Foundation, military families will find healing and hope.

The $10,000 in scholarships also helps further the educational needs of those families who are awarded.
