TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A local business is using fireworks to fuel the fire of knowledge for children and spouses of local veterans.
World Class Fireworks is working with a non-profit organization called Folds of Honor, which awards scholarships up to $5,000 to the children and spouses of either deceased or disabled war veterans.
World Class Fireworks created a firework named Folds of Honor. Jake's Fireworks will sell it at three Topeka locations for $30, with $10 of the cost going to the veterans' scholarship fund.
The locations are 2045 SE 45th St., 4444 NW 17th St. and 4490 NW Lower Silver Lake Rd.
The organizations hope to raise $250,000 this Independence Day.
