CORT and Folds of Honor Foundation Launch Texting Program to Raise Money for Military Families
- May 01, 2013
Chantilly, Va.—As part of CORT’s partnership with the Folds of Honor Foundation, the transition services company has introduced a new texting program that allows customers to make a donation for educational scholarships that benefit children and spouses of fallen or severely injured soldiers from the convenience of their mobile phones. Customers can text “CORT” to 27722 and donate $10 to the Folds of Honor. A one-time donation of $10 will be added to the customer’s mobile phone bill or deducted from a prepaid balance.
The texting program is being promoted in all of CORT’s rental and retail showrooms across the United States. Customers can text a donation from now until December 31, 2013.
Founded by Major Dan Rooney in 2007, the Folds of Honor Foundation provides educational scholarships to dependents and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our nation. As part of the partnership, CORT is providing monetary support to Folds of Honor Foundation. In addition, CORT is donating furniture, accessories and housewares to the first Folds of Honor Foundation’s Honor Cottage located in Sperry, Okla., which is a retreat house where military families can kick back and relax away from the challenges of everyday life. The Honor Cottage is expected to be completed by Independence Day 2013.
