Philip Busch, President of Southern Eagle Distributing and the Peter W Busch Family Foundation made donations to (2) local organizations who support the children of fallen soldiers. A Soldier’s Child Foundation and Operation 300 will use the donations to help fulfill their mission.
A Soldier’s Child Foundation celebrates the birthdays for children of fallen soldiers every year up to age 18. ASC covers all military branches. In addition to celebrating birthdays, ASC offers a week-long summer “Journey Camp” for these children between the ages of 8–16. They also offer a host of mentorship and leadership programs for older ASC teens. Finally, the organization provides a program that facilitates in college scholarships. These three initiatives are ASC’s “three points of service” to honor the children of our fallen American defenders of freedom.
We believe that when a soldier gives his life in defense of our great nation, the least that we can do is pledge to honor that sacrifice and care for his children. This is the heart behind Operation 300, a registered 501(c)3 not for profit organization which hosts adventure camps for children who have lost their fathers as a result of military service and seeks to honor the families of the fallen. The camps provide an opportunity to participate in activities that embody the spirit of adventure that characterized the lives of their absent fathers while fostering a culture of courage, strength, freedom, endurance, honor and godly morality embodied by fearless patriots throughout the history of our American Republic.
“It’s an honor to support these organizations,” said Philip Busch. “They provide an invaluable service to families who have made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting us here at home.”
The Peter W. Busch Family Foundation was formed 29 years ago in Ft. Pierce. Peter W. Busch believes in supporting initiatives that improve the quality of health, education and family in his community, as well as, the preservation of Florida’s indigenous animals and landscape. Peter’s belief has been that “we all must give back to the very people who help keep us in business and survive.”
Since 1984, Peter has owned Southern Eagle Distributing, the local Anheuser-Busch distributor, and has made enormous strides in providing for charitable causes. Aside from all that he has contributed, citizens within our community view Mr. Busch and his family are ultimate givers, not only of monetary/beverage donations, but of their time, hearts and minds
