The freedoms that we love so much here in America are not guaranteed. They are earned through the sacrifices of men and women in the United States Armed Forces. Too often, these brave Patriots are killed in action, never to return to the families that are left behind. Fortunately, several organizations have made it their goal to help these families after the loss of a loved that was killed in action. One such organization is the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots).
K&N's Jesse Spungin awards the check to Robert Moeller who accepts it on behalf of Fallen Patriots
Fallen Patriots was founded in 2002 to honor the sacrifices of our fallen military heroes by assisting their children with the funds necessary to attend college. Since their inception, Fallen Patriots has provided more than $15 million in aid, including scholarships, grants, and counseling to young men and women who have lost a parent in the line of duty. K&N Engineering is an avid supporter of our military and over the years has supported multiple organizations.
K&N Engineering has donated $100,000 dollars to Fallen Patriots to help change the lives of those left behind. “It is important to everyone at K&N to give back to the families who sacrificed so much for us,” said K&N Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Jesse Spungin. “For almost 50 years, K&N has been an American company and we owe it to these men and women. Helping an organization like Fallen Patriots is one way we can help the legacy of these American Heroes live on in the lives of their children.”
The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation helps send the children of fallen soldiers to college
The cost of a college education is now more expensive than ever and to be able to assist with that is a goal that is extremely important to Fallen Patriots.
“With the average college cost gap totaling $32,000, the need for financial support is significant,” according to a spokesperson for Fallen Patriots. “Partners’ continued dedication, in ways ranging from financial support to creating awareness, has helped Fallen Patriots continue to fulfil their mission to ensure a future for surviving military children.”
K&N is proud to be a part of this effort in helping give the children of fallen patriots a chance to go to college and further their education. For more information about the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, visit them at fallenpatriots.org.
