This growing total of $200,000 contributed to law enforcement organizations has been going on since June of this past year. Henry Repeating Arms has a charitable arm to their company called “Guns for Great Causes” where they donate money to all kinds of worthy and commendable organizations. This includes everything from supporting military veterans and first responder organizations, individual families of sick children and children’s hospitals, wildlife conservation, and general Second Amendment advocacy. A more thorough explanation of this most recent, generous donation can be read below via Henry’s press release:
Rice Lake, Wisconsin (January 9th, 2023) –“I grew up in my family’s police equipment shop right across the street from the New York Police Department headquarters, so I have a longstanding respect for law enforcement officers and what they have to endure daily,” says Anthony Imperato, CEO and Founder of Henry Repeating Arms. Imperato continues, “More than ever, they need not just our support, but the support of the people they serve and protect day in and day out on a local, state, and national level. Our hat’s off to the employees and volunteers of the organizations that make it their mission to support the men and women of law enforcement.”
On December 15th, 2022, Imperato visited the offices of the Fraternal Order of Police and the National Sheriffs’ Association in the Washington metropolitan area to present each with a check for $25,000. The following day, Imperato presented another $25,000 check to the American Association of State Troopers at Henry Repeating Arms’ manufacturing facility in Bayonne, New Jersey. Earlier in the year, Henry Repeating Arms also donated $50,000 to Tunnel to Towers, $50,000 to the First Responders Children’s Foundation, and $25,000 to Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.).
The firearm manufacturer’s support for police manifests in other ways, like the fully engraved and hand-painted Law Enforcement Tribute Edition rifle, a permanent fixture in the company’s product catalog. Henry Repeating Arms offers several other models exclusively to law enforcement officers, like their American Sheriff Tribute Edition rifles, Fraternal Order of Police Tribute Edition rifles, and a unique program offering custom engraved rifles for departments.
“My vision is to return to the law enforcement business at some point; I love it that much. Henry Repeating Arms will always be a staunch supporter of those whose job it is to protect us and who risk their lives every day to do so,” Imperato concludes.
Henry Repeating Arms has been giving back to numerous groups throughout the history of their company via “Guns for Great Causes,” but the regularity of their generosity does not diminish the reach and phenomenal impact they are having. It is always wonderful to hear companies give back in such a tremendous way and very few companies do it as well as Henry. As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below!
