Propper International will donate a portion of proceeds from its summer apparel collection to support Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA), which supports law enforcement.
Sheep Dog Impact Assistance supports personnel in law enforcement, fire, and EMS services. Officers are often referred to as "sheep dogs." In addition to its financial support, Propper will work to increase awareness of SDIA, specifically its direct assistance programs, disaster response teams and survival preparedness education.
"Propper feels fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to the communities we serve through this new partnership," Bryan Griggs, Propper's president of international sales, said in a release. "We have seen the amazing impact they have had on the communities they assisted with disaster relief or local families of service men and women."
The group was founded in 2009 by First Sgt. Lance Nutt (USMC), following Hurricane Katrina. Nutt wanted to utilize his military training and experience to help others in need.
"For our organization, 'helping others is a way of life,' and with Propper's support, our ability to help others will greatly improve," Nutt said in a release. "What makes this partnership so perfect is that we are both working towards a mission serving the needs of our nation's military and public safety personnel."
