Midwestern Pet Foods (MPF), a leading high-quality pet food and treat manufacturer, is honoring the ultimate sacrifice by supporting military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty through the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (Fallen Patriots). A portion of all MPF sales will go towards Children of Fallen Patriots.
This Memorial Day, MPF honors and remembers those military families. With backing from partnerships like Midwestern Pet Foods, Children of Fallen Patriots raises awareness and funds to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to children of fallen service members. The foundation provides holistic care for its scholars, which encompasses educational benefits, internship opportunities and job placements. The success of Children of Fallen Patriots can be told by countless surviving scholars, including Johannah Bordelon, daughter of fallen U.S. Army First Sergeant Michael Joseph Bordelon. “My entire life, I wanted to make my Dad proud and take advantage of the opportunities he has given me through his sacrifice. The moment I contacted Fallen Patriots, they assisted with everything I needed. Knowing that I have extra help takes the burden of student loans off my shoulders. I am forever thankful," says Bordelon, University of California.
