Representatives from Stanley Black & Decker were in Ashburn last week to deliver a donation of $7,500 worth of tools to help a veteran-owned and staffed organization.
Flags of Valor recently experienced a fire at its headquarters. Although no one was injured in the incident, the organization suffered a tremendous loss of materials and products.
The company was founded by Air Force veteran Brian Steorts, who used his passion of woodworking to create a one-of-a-kind business to sell wooden flags handcrafted by combat veterans. The business creates an environment of teamwork and camaraderie for the service-disabled group of employees.
Stanley Black & Decker has been a supporter of Flags of Valor for several years. Upon hearing of the incident, the team organized the tool donation to ensure the organization could continue its mission.
