Snap-on Honoring Veterans
Oct. 9, 2013—As part of its sponsorship of the Honor Flight Network, Snap-on Inc. is honoring more than 50 of its employed veterans by sending them to Washington, D.C., this weekend to visit the memorials erected in their honor.
Snap-on formally announced its sponsorship of the Honor Flight Network with a $50,000 donation to the organization earlier this year. As a result, more than 50 associates and franchisees will participate in Honor Flights to view their memorials. The group will be joined by Snap-on chairman and chief executive officer Nick Pinchuk, also a veteran.
“This is an extraordinary day for Snap-on joining with the Honor Flight Network in recognizing our veterans who have given so much. Today, we’re saluting these patriots by giving them a chance to visit the memorials in Washington, D.C. dedicated to their service by a grateful nation,” said Pinchuk. “Snap-on is a great American company, and it’s a privilege for us to thank our veterans in this way. They protected our freedom and helped make possible the America we love and enjoy today. These Honor Flights give us the opportunity to show them that their sacrifice has not been forgotten.”
Snap-on will make a second $50,000 donation to fund two additional flights scheduled for Spring 2014.
