“Each year, our teammates, our vendor partners, and most importantly, our customers, join us on the Schnucks mission to Nourish People’s Lives by helping to provide educational scholarships to family members of injured and fallen service members through Folds of Honor,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Because of our customers’ immense generosity and our team’s commitment to the effort, we have been able to raise $5.05 million and fund 990 educational scholarships since launching this annual campaign in 2018.”

Schnucks officials presented a check to Folds of Honor on the field at Busch Stadium prior to Friday night's St. Louis Cardinals game. Folds of Honor was established 16 years ago after Major Dan Rooney, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, saw the grieving family of a fallen U.S. Army Corporal meeting their loved one’s flag-draped coffin on an airport tarmac. The 501(c)(3) has awarded more than 35,000 scholarships to military spouses and children since 2007.
