WESTLAKE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The award-winning, family casual dining restaurant, Quaker Steak & Lube®, is celebrating America’s most patriotic holidays with a campaign to garner donations for the Folds of Honor organization. Together with Budweiser, Quaker Steak & Lube will honor the sacrifices of fallen or disabled military service men and women by inviting restaurant guests to round-up their checks to the next dollar (or more), from May 25 -- the start of Memorial Day Weekend -- through July 4. All donations will go to Folds of Honor to provide educational scholarships to families of American service men and women who have paid the price for our freedom while on active duty in the U.S. armed forces.
“It’s our privilege to participate in the Folds of Honor program to pay tribute to America’s heroes,” shared Bruce Lane, Vice President of Quaker Steak & Lube. “The scholarships that Folds of Honor awards through these donations help to give hope and support through education to military service families who have lost so much. Together, we can really make a difference,” he added.
During the 6-week fundraising campaign, guests at participating Quaker Steak & Lube restaurants simply need to tell their servers they want to 'round up' their check for Folds of Honor. Guests can round up to the next dollar, or make a larger donation if they wish. Guests can also provide the name of the service member for whom they wish to honor with their donation.
For guests unable to make it to Quaker Steak & Lube during this time, a donation can still be made by texting their pledge amount along with QSL to 36413 (message and data rates may apply).
