Jake’s Fireworks officially opened its new Auburn Hills super store for the Fourth of July Season on Thursday, June 13. Now, the top consumer fireworks company in the U.S., Jake’s Fireworks, employees over 30 people in the Auburn Hills area.
At the ribbon cutting, Jake’s Fireworks announced its partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation for the upcoming Fourth of July Season. Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation. As of January 2012, more than one million dependents have been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, 85 percent do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance.
