Valor Group of Quaker

Eastern Iowa Honor Flight was presented a check in the amount of $85,000.00 from the employees of Quaker through fundraising efforts of the Valor Group. These are employees of Quaker who are veterans, and are driven to make sure that as many veterans possible get the opportunity to travel to see the memorials in Washington, DC dedicated to their service and sacrifice. Our thanks to Allen Stekl, Jason Brandon, Steve Blake, the members of the Valor Group, and the many employees of Quaker, and their parent company PepsiCo for their company match.
