One of the perks of being the Department Commander is choosing a Veterans organization or non-profit to highlight and raise funds for. This year's Joint Project with Commander Barry Henriksen and President Jamie Cassavant who have chosen Folds of Honor.

Folds of Honor’s mission statement is "Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.” This short yet powerful statement shows the organization’s dedication to helping the families of those who have fallen in combat. Almost all of the money raised by Folds of Honor goes directly into scholarships and other educational programs such as private tutoring. Their logo of a folded flag represents the flags buried with lost soldiers and reminds us of the heavy price of freedom. At the same time, the flag acts as a symbol of hope and freedom to those left behind. With this logo, the organization is constantly inspired to give aid to the military families that have lost loved ones. Throughout over a decade of work, Folds of Honor has helped over 2,500 service member families with their educational expenses.
