This past summer, Quaker Steak & Lube® restaurants donated a portion of proceeds from sales to the Folds of Honor, which helps provide educational scholarships to children and spouses of fallen and disabled American military while in service to our nation.
"In partnership with Folds of Honor, we are happy to award Ashley with this scholarship as she strives to achieve her dreams of becoming a doctor," said Greg Lippert, President and CEO of Quaker Steak & Lube®.

We are proud to help Folds of Honor in its mission to enable the education of tomorrow's leaders."
