Leading up to our company Christmas party, we always hold an employee raffle. We take the money raised by our employees for the raffle and the company then matches that amount. The money raised is then donated to a local charity.
In 2017, we donated $3,000 to Toys for Tots in Pensacola. In 2018, we donated $4,000 to our neighbors in Panama City Beach who were devasted by Hurricane Michael and for 2019, we are donating $2,500 to the two Escambia County Sheriff Deputies shot and injured in the line of duty at NAS Pensacola while defending our fine sailors. We took a vote at the Christmas party and the results were unanimous that the money we raised should go to these two local heroes. This is small token of appreciation from the Folkers family to those who stand on the wall to protect us all.
