Grinnell, Iowa (PRWEB) May 23, 2017
Brownells will once again join forces with industry partners to support veterans by donating five percent of its overall sales on Memorial Day 2017, May 29, to Special Operations Wounded Warriors (SOWW).
SOWW provides outdoor recreational events and other support for Purple Heart recipients of the U.S. Special Forces Community.
In addition, the following companies have also agreed to donate five percent of their Memorial Day sales at Brownells to the cause:
- Aero Precision
- Wilson Combat
It is the second year for Brownells to designate a percentage of its Memorial Day sales to help SOWW.
“Special Operations Wounded Warriors is incredibly thankful for the continued generosity of Brownells,” said Joel Pellicci, Vice President of SOWW. “Their financial support created through the Memorial Day fundraiser as well as other charity that they have provided throughout the years has elevated Brownells to be our top supporter for the third consecutive year. Brownells' generous support provides us the opportunity to give thanks and therapy to deserving men and women of our U.S. Special Operations forces that have been wounded in service to our country. We are forever grateful.”
“As civilians, it’s our duty and honor to help those who choose to wear a uniform and serve,” said Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “Every branch of service, every police officer, every firefighter and first responder. Donating to SOWW is just one small way for us to say ‘Thank You’ to a very special group who sacrifice so much to defend our way of life.”
SOWW (Special Operations Wounded Warriors), a 501(c)(3) Charity, was formed in August of 2012 for the distinct purpose of providing outdoor experiences to a select group of both active duty and veteran U.S. Military Special Operations Forces, that have received wounds in battle, and have received our country’s prestigious Purple Heart Medal.
