TULSA, Oklahoma - 

Jim Glover Chevrolet donated $61,000 to the Folds of Honor Foundation. 

The money came from vehicles the dealership sold during the month of May.

Folds of Honor gives scholarships to children and spouses of service members who have been killed or disabled in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Since its inception in 2007, Owasso-based Folds of Honor has awarded more than 3,800 immediate and future-use educational scholarships. As of January 2012, more than one million dependents have been affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, 87 percent do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance.
