Lubbock company donating firework profits to support military families

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and one Lubbock fireworks company is taking their products one step further this year.

Texas Star Discount Fireworks, a Lubbock family-owned business, has joined with World Class Fireworks and the Folds of Honor Foundation to bring Lubbock a one-of-a-kind firework.

"This year we are selling a special cake 500 gram display finale to support the Folds of Honor Foundation," said Keith Wilcoxson with Texas Star Discount Fireworks.

Texas Star Discount Fireworks will be selling a special firework, Folds of Honor, until the Fourth of July.

The Folds of Honor Foundation was created to provide scholarships to children and spouses of military service men and women who were either killed or disabled while serving our country.

"We've been doing this for 22 years. We built it from one stand to four stands in three locations and we were excited to give something back to the community and to the military families," Wilcoxson said. 

Each "cake" is $30 and $10 will go to the foundation. 

"We have already actually given out over 2,600 scholarships to students and families..." he said. 

Texas Star Discount Fireworks and World Class Fireworks hope to raise over $250,000, which will help over 50 families in need.

"The need that's out there for military families...our government does everything they can, but there's a lot more people that need educational benefits than they can support through either the G.I. Bill or things like."

The product will be available at 5606 Farm Market Rd. 1585, 82nd St. and HWY 179 in Wolfforth and 1115 Farm Market Rd. 1585.
