TOLEDO - The Grainger Foundation has donated $10,000 to Honor Flight Northwest Ohio to support its mission of honoring American veterans.
"This grant will be used to take World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam veterans to Washington, D.C.," said Lee Armstrong, president of Honor Flight Northwest Ohio. "We honor our veterans by giving them an opportunity to see their memorials in the nation's capital. We are grateful to the Grainger Foundation for its generosity."
Armstrong said that the organization has already conducted 30 flights, safely escorting 1,520 veterans.
Honor Flight Northwest Ohio still has well over 500 veterans on its waiting list.
This donation was recommended by Jack Hoagland, branch manager of W.W. Grainger's Perrysburg location.
