Folds of Honor is continuing to give back to military families across the state in a big way.
The Owasso-based nonprofit has increased its regional footprint after recently launching its 10th chapter in Oklahoma City.
Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization out of Owasso dedicated to providing educational scholarships to children and spouses of fallen or disabled service members.
The organization held a special ceremony at the Gaillardia Country Club in Oklahoma City Tuesday to commemorate the occasion.
“It’s inspirational to see people come together for Folds of Honor, and we are so grateful for the continued support,” said Jim Ravella, senior vice president. “We are very excited to see what’s to come for the newest chapter of Folds of Honor, here in Oklahoma City.”
The chapter will be led by Ryan Lewellyn, the new president of the Folds of Honor Oklahoma City chapter, with an initial fundraising amount of $3 million.
Major Ed Pulido, senior vice president of public relations and military affairs, said he is also looking forward to the new partnership at the state’s capital.
“It’s because of the amazing people around the country who have joined our mission that we have the chance to help thousands of children and spouses in need every year,” Pulido said.
