CORT is thrilled to announce its official partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation! Founded in 2007, the Folds of Honor Foundation (FHF) provides educational scholarships to dependents and spouses of military service men and women killed or severely disabled in the line of duty. As the exclusive furniture provider and a sponsor of the foundation, CORT will award $50,000 in scholarships to deserving military family members across the country.
“As a longtime supporter of the military, CORT is extremely proud to support the Folds of Honor Foundation,” said Lisa Woodworth, vice president marketing. “Given the foundation’s similar values, vision and belief in education for our military, partnering with Folds of Honor was a natural decision for CORT. We look forward to assisting Folds of Honor’s efforts in bettering the lives of the families of our nation’s heroes that have made our everyday lives possible and providing deserving students with scholarship support.”
CORT’s partnership with FHF allows the company to focus on two causes near and dear to its heart: military and education. This new partnership offers the opportunity to further CORT’s over 40-year dedication to supporting military and families and provide an opportunity to work together to raise scholarship funds for children and spouses of our fallen heroes.
To launch this new partnership, CORT is donating furniture to the Folds of Honor Foundation’s first Honor Cottage located in Sperry, Okla. The Honor Cottage is a retreat house where military families can stay and relax away from the challenges of everyday life. Construction is expected to be completed just in time for the Fourth of July holiday. Keep an eye out in your local CORT showroom for special programs and sales to benefit FHF throughout the year.
