GLENDALE, Ariz. (March 26, 2019) – Gateway Mortgage Group, LLC, a full-service mortgage company licensed in 40 states and District of Columbia, presented a check to Folds of Honor for $5,165 today at Gateway Mortgage Glendale office. Rachael Chapman, a Folds of Honor regional development officer, and Cole Ricke, a higher education scholarship recipient, attended the ceremony and accepted the donation on behalf of the organization.

“The stories of Folds of Honor lie in the stories of the families we serve,” said Rachael Chapman. “By continuing to stand with Folds, Gateway is advancing our mission of paying a tribute to those stories through support and continued education. With their help and commitment to strengthening families, we are confident that we will be able to raise even more support for military families.”
