On August 1, 2013 Eastern Iowa Honor Flight accepted a check from the employees of PepsiCo/Quaker Co in the amount of $85,000.00. This was a fund raising campaign devised and implemented by the Valor Group at Quaker. This group is comprised of veterans who involved all Quaker employees and retirees in the fundraising. PepsiCo/Quaker is the sponsor of the September 10, 2013 flight. Their enthusiasm in taking on this operation was something to behold. The objective? To make sure as many veterans as possible get the opportunity to travel to Washington, DC to see the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice. Thank you PepsiCo/Quaker employees for your successful fundraising campaign and support of the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight.
