The Checkered Flag Foundation, a charity started by reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Brad Keselowski, has awarded a $5,000 grant to Operation North State (ONS), a non-profit organization based in Winston-Salem, N.C., that provides numerous military support services to North Carolinas deployed troops and veterans-in-need.
The $5,000 grant was one of four awarded by CFF this year.
Operation North State works on a large scale to ship care packages to deployed troops from North Carolina.
The Checkered Flag Foundation was incorporated in July 2010. The Foundation strives to support individuals who have sacrificed greatly for America, including military members, veterans, first-responders and their families, among others.
