In the true spirit of Memorial Day, Ace Hardware is again collaborating with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. As an essential business, Ace Hardware stores remain open to safely serve their neighbors and local communities.
Consumers who visit a participating Ace store on May 23 will receive a FREE 8” x 12” American flag while a second flag will be donated to a local VFW Post to be used for marking and honoring veteran graves this Memorial Day. Flags will be available in participating Ace stores, while quantities last. There is a limit of one flag per customer. No purchase necessary.
Last year, Ace Hardware sent a total of 535,000 flags to 2,230 local VFW Posts across the country. The American flag giveaway aligns with Ace Hardware’s long history of supporting veterans nationwide. Ace’s very name is a commemoration of the “Flying Aces,” the courageous fighter pilots from the First World War. Ace’s patriotism continues through the support of its veteran retailers, and the sincere appreciation for all the veterans and active-duty military who work in Ace stores, distribution centers, and its corporate offices.
