5.11 Tactical Gives $25K to National LEO Memorial Fund from Police Week
Adam Scepaniak 05.18.20
Last week was our nationally honored Police Week in the United States where we honor all of the brave men and women who keep our communities safe in good times and in bad. This is more important than ever under our current circumstances of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. One company who is absolutely aware of that and looking to make a difference is 5.11 Tactical. They have taken a portion of their sales and looked to give back to the National LEO Memorial Fund. The complete Press Release from 5.11 Tactical can be read below:
“Irvine, CA (May 11, 2020) –5.11, Inc., the global innovator of purpose-built apparel, footwear and gear announced today that they will be donating up to $25,000 to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund from the proceeds of the brand’s limited edition ‘Honor Those Who Serve’ patch. Additionally, 5.11 is a sponsor of the NLEOMF Virtual Candlelight Vigil which will take place on Wednesday, May 13th. This donation and sponsorship are two of several activations 5.11 has executed honoring first responders during the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘Honor Those Who Serve’ patch launch occurs during National Police Week 2020. The patch features a thin blue line and eagle – both symbols honoring law enforcement officers everywhere. 100% net proceeds of the patch will be donated to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund up to $25,000. The patch can be purchased online at www.511Tactical.com as well as 5.11 retail stores across the country.
In addition to the ‘Honor Those Who Serve Patch’ and donation to NLEOMF, 5.11 also launched the Inside The Blue Line video series in partnership with SIG SAUER produced by Ironclad Media this week. The video series follows Manchester, New Hampshire’s police department and highlights the realities of life as a law enforcement officer today.“
While Police Week may be over we can always recognize the men and women in blue year round. If you would still like to get a morale patch you can do so on 5.11 Tactical’s website. The CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of 5.11 Tactical, Francisco J. Morales, also had these words to share surrounding Police Week, the National LEO Memorial Fund, and their efforts to give back:
“We are honored to be working with the Memorial Fund to support law enforcement officers nationwide through our donation as well as the candlelight vigil. We appreciate all of our first responders, and especially law enforcement officers more than ever during this year’s National Police Week as our nation navigates the unprecedented times of the coronavirus pandemic. Our gratitude for our police force has never been greater and our support of the Memorial Fund will impact so many officers and their families.“
The National Law Enforcement Officers (LEO) Memorial Fund does very important work by honoring our fallen police officers and paying them their deserved respect for their loved ones and families. The CEO of the National LEO Memorial Fund, Marcia Ferranto, presented these words regarding 5.11 Tactical, their generosity, and the mission of the National LEO Memorial Fund:
“We are grateful for 5.11, their partnership and generosity over the years. Partners like 5.11 allow us to properly recognize and honor the men and women and their families who make the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and communities. The importance of saluting these individuals is greater than ever as we’ve come to ask more than ever from our officers and their families.“
I believe I can proudly speak for everyone here at AllOutdoor when I say we cannot thank our men and women behind the badge enough for everything they do in our communities. They sometimes execute a thankless job and rush into dangers many others would avoid in order to keep us all safe. So, thank you to all of our law enforcement readers out there and even those who have not visited AllOutdoor.
