Stater Bros. Charities and PepsiCo Present $50,000 to Fallen Patriots Foundation

Stater Bros. Markets and PepsiCo associates gathered to commemorate PepsiCo’s 6th annual “Rolling Remembrance,” an 8,000+ mile long relay that honors military heroes who lost their lives while serving the United States. This cross-country relay embarks from Seattle, transporting an American flag first flown on a UH-60M Blackhawk Helicopter in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom.  PepsiCo’s extensive network of Veteran drivers will pass off the flag to each other at different relay points. The relay will conclude at PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase, N.Y., on Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11th.

During the stop at Stater Bros. Markets headquarters, Stater Bros. Charities and PepsiCo presented a $50,000 donation to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, an organization that provides college scholarships and educational counseling to children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.

“We are very grateful for our continued partnership with PepsiCo and Children of Fallen Patriots. Supporting the education of the children of the heroes that lost their lives serving our country is just one way we can honor their memory,” stated Nancy Negrette, Chairman and President Stater Bros. Charities.

Funds will assist families of service members from all branches of the armed forces who have died as a result of combat casualties, military training accidents, service-related illnesses, suicide, as well as other duty-related deaths as ruled by the Department of Veterans affairs.
