Fort Smith, AR, July 24, 2018 – Gateway Mortgage Group, founded by Kevin Stitt, continues to support an annual commitment to support our military families with its monthly donation of $8,925 to Folds of Honor. The check presentation ceremony will take place at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, July 24, at Beland Manor in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Allie Rozelle, a higher education Folds of Honor recipient, will accept the donation on behalf of Folds of Honor. In May of 2017, Gateway announced that it would donate $5 to Folds of Honor for every mortgage loan closed through its Mortgage Centers nationwide. These donations go directly towards funding scholarships for spouses and dependents of wounded and fallen veterans.
“Gateway is founded on the core value of being passionate about strengthening families,” said Laney Briggs, regional vice president at Gateway. “We are proud to stand with Folds of Honor as they support the families of our service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting our freedoms.”
Folds of Honor addresses the financial gap of dependents within our military families by providing educational scholarships to children and spouses of military heroes across the United States. In May of 2018, Gateway extended its partnership with Folds of Honor for another 12 months. The company expects total donations to surpass $200,000. Gateway Mortgage Group remains steadfast in their commitment to give back to the families of our fallen heroes, whose sacrifice can never be repaid.
