Grainger Donates $50,000 to Educational Nonprofit

The donation came about from the 2018 Grainger Show in Orlando, Fla.; for every dollar of sales made through its Big Red Store during the show, Grainger pledged to donate one dollar -- up to a total of $50,000 -- to Folds of Honor.

Grainger has donated $50,000 to Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization based in Owasso, Okla., that provides educational scholarships to families of fallen and disabled service members. The organization announced April 26 that the donation will go toward its Higher Education Scholarship program.

"We couldn't do what we do for our amazing military families without the generosity of organizations like Grainger," said Maj. Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor's founder. "We are incredibly grateful for this commitment. With Grainger's donation, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of brave military families nationwide immediately, as this contribution will be allocated in our 2018 scholarship distribution."

"Not only is the U.S. military a huge part of our company DNA, but Grainger also has a passion for education and job training that creates positive changes and new opportunities in our communities," Macpherson said. "That's why we are honored to support Folds of Honor and help educate the families of those who serve our country."
