Zoetis presented the company’s second donation to Folds of Honor yesterday, bringing the company’s total first half contribution to $292,000 to help support the work of the nonprofit in honoring America’s heroes. Based in Owasso, Oklahoma, Folds of Honor provides academic scholarships to the families of men and women who have fallen or been disabled while serving in the U.S. armed forces.

Through the continued support of beef and dairy producers purchasing select Zoetis products, Zoetis is able to honor the service of U.S. armed forces members and their families. Jared Shriver, senior vice president of U.S. Cattle and Pork at Zoetis, presented a donation of $170,000 to Ben Leslie, chief impact officer for Folds of Honor, during a ceremony Aug. 25.

“We appreciate our customers and their belief in our products and our mission. Through this donation, Zoetis is able to help fund scholarship programs for the families of the heroes that help protect our rights and freedoms as Americans,” Shriver said.

Since Folds of Honor was founded in 2007 by Lt Col Dan Rooney, an F-16 fighter pilot who served three combat tours of duty in Iraq, the organization has awarded more than $160 million in academic scholarships to 35,000 recipients.

“The support of Zoetis allows us to continue providing more life-changing educational opportunities for the families of our military,” said Leslie with Folds of Honor. “This contribution helps us fund 34 new scholarships for deserving recipients.”
