Servicemen and women are important people to everyone at PowerPak. Police officers and firefighters have enormous challenges, especially here in the state of New York.
The city is home to 8.4 million people, more than twice the size of any other city in the U.S. As a result, police officers and firefighters deal with a large volume of issues from crime to accidents almost every day. For this reason, they have our utmost respect.
However, Sept. 11 gave our city a challenge it has never seen before. While many remember it as a sad day, it also represents a time when New York came together. We saw extraordinary bravery from firefighters, police officers and EMS personnel despite putting their lives in danger.
That’s why in order to honor the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we are working with Answer the Call to support the families of those killed in the line of duty. For the month of September, 10 percent of pre-tax sales from select glove products in our promotion will be donated to this organization. It’s an organization we know well and truly believe in.
Answer the call provides two sources of assistance to families of fallen first responders.
First and foremost, it offers $25,000 when a public servant passes away to help alleviate some of the financial burdens that come with losing a loved one. Second, it provides a network of support. Families are invited to social gatherings that they host throughout the year that is fun but allows them to connect with others going through similar grief.
We pride ourselves in doing charitable work and this organization is one we truly value for its connection to New York City in addition to its cause. Whether you’re a customer of ours or not, we hope you consider donating.
