Stater Bros. Charities, PepsiCo Give $50K To Fallen Patriots

Fallen

Stater Bros. Markets and PepsiCo associates gathered to commemorate PepsiCo’s sixth annual “Rolling Remembrance,” an 8,000-plus mile long relay that honors military heroes who lost their lives while serving the United States. During the stop at the retailer’s headquarters, Stater Bros. Charities and PepsiCo presented a $50,000 donation to the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation.

The 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 of 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.

The cross-country relay embarked 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 are passing off the flag to each other at different relay points. The relay will conclude at PepsiCo headquarters in Purchase, New York, on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

San Bernardino, California-based Stater Bros. Charities is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that supports critical needs in the communities where Stater Bros. employees live and work. Since 2008, Stater Bros. Charities has invested more than $36 million in countless local organizations and causes that benefit hunger relief, children’s well-being, education, health, help for the nation’s veterans and active service members.
