Colt Announces Charity Partner: Folds of Honor

We all know Colt. They’ve armed our fighting men for decades. Well, now they’ve announced a charity partnership with an organization that helps their families after the fight. Started back in 2007, Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to military families with members who have been killed or injured on active duty. To date they’ve given out more than 7,500 scholarships, with over 2,000 in 2014 alone.

Here’s what Colt has to say about it:

Colt has a longstanding tradition of supporting veteran charities. “At Colt, we are inspired by the bravery and sacrifice of those who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedoms,” said Paul Spitale, Colt’s Sr. Vice President of Commercial Business. “We want to honor their commitment by doing our part to help ensure that the ones they love are supported, no matter what happens.”

Colt will be offering exclusive Folds & Colt wearables through www.shop.colt.com, and will help raise awareness for Folds of Honor’s shooting event series, Patriot Range Days. Held at ranges across the US, Patriot Range Days offer a way for shooters to support Folds of Honor by engaging in the shooting sports, through events and donation points.

“The Folds of Honor Foundation is honored to partner with Colt to make sure that we leave no family behind on the field of battle,” said Major Ed Pulido, U.S. Army (Ret.),Sr. Vice President of Folds of Honor. “Together we are making a difference in the lives of those military families who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms.”
