Quaker Steak & Lube Partners with Folds Of Honor
Did you hear the news? Quaker Steak & Lube® recently partnered with Budweiser to raise funds for the Folds of Honor organization, honoring our fallen and disabled heroes by providing their families with educational scholarships! Through July 4, guests at select Lube locations have the option to round up their bill to the next dollar or more, donating directly to Folds of Honor and making a difference for the families of our loyal and brave servicemen.
Fields Of Honor is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational sponsorships to the families of military men and women who have been disabled or have fallen in the line of duty. The organization was founded in 2007 by Major Dan Rooney, who was an F-16 fighter pilot out of the Oklahoma Air National Guard. Since its inception, Fields of Honor has provided nearly 12,000 scholarships in all 50 states, with over 2,800 scholarships awarded in 2016 alone!
Senior Vice President of TravelCenters of America, John Ponczoch, had this to say about the ever-so-rewarding campaign:
“We chose the Memorial Day and July Fourth holidays for this campaign to remember all of the sacrifices made by those who have fallen or become disabled as a result of serving in the armed forces. One great way to honor these heroes is to help provide for their legacy with educational scholarships, giving them hope and support for their future.”
How Can Guests Get Involved?
During this campaign, guests at participating locations can tell their server to round up their check for Folds Of Honor. As mentioned, this can be as small or large as they’d like — and every donation truly makes a difference! Additionally, those who are not within physical proximity of their favorite Lube can make a donation by texting their pledge amount to 36413, adding the hashtag: #QSL4FOLDS.
But That’s Not All!
As an incentive to get franchise locations to support the cause, the top two stores with the highest total donations will receive one of two prizes; a ride in a P-51 plane, or a framed authentic bomber jacket. Getting involved in the community is something that The Lube takes great pride in, and we’re so excited to continue this initiative and honor the great men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country.
Of course, if you want to get in on the fun as well, Quaker Steak & Lube is actively looking for restaurant professionals who are interested in opening their own location! If you’re a motivated self-starter who loves giving back to the community, please fill out our franchise application for more information or call 1-877-695-8231. Come expand Lube Nation with us!
