Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Veteran Energy is pleased to announce it has joined forces with a new affinity partner, Folds of Honor. The Texas electricity company runs a program called The Power to Give Back™ to donate a portion of every customer’s bill to trusted military and veteran organizations.
Folds of Honor provides assistance for veterans’ families. With more than 700,000 brave Americans killed or disabled in military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, more than one million family members have been adversely affected by these deployments. More than 87% of these spouses and children do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. Folds of Honor was founded to support the families of our military heroes through scholarships and other financial support.
“We’re really pleased to begin supporting Folds of Honor,” said Veteran Energy president and founder, Kevin R. Barber. “Our soldiers fight for better lives for all Americans. We want to make sure we can fulfill that vision for their families as well.”
Veteran Energy has donated more than $50,000 to veteran and military causes since it was founded in 2010.
“It is an honor to partner with a company that dedicates time, talents, and resources to helping our nation's heroes. We are honored to become a partner with Veteran Energy and their affinity program,” said Todd Collins, USMCR and director at Folds of Honor.
Current Affinity Partners include Fisher House, the Lone Survivor Foundation and the Texas VFW. The company serves military and non-military alike in all deregulated areas of Texas, including the greater Houston area, greater Dallas-Ft. Worth area, West Texas, South Texas and the Valley.
