Henry Repeating Arms, one of America's leading firearms manufacturers, announces a donation of $50,000 to First Responders Children's Foundation (FRCF).
FRCF was founded in 2001 in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 for the 800 surviving children who lost a first responder parent on that tragic day. Since then, FRCF has grown to be a national non-profit focusing on four key program areas: scholarships for children of first responders injured or killed in the line of duty; financial assistance grants/line of duty death bereavement support; a mental health resiliency program; and first responder community engagement.
“The primary focus of our Guns for Great Causes program has always been about children, which is why we are extremely proud to help support such an esteemed and worthwhile organization,” says Henry Repeating Arms CEO and founder Anthony Imperato. “No one does a better job of meeting the real financial needs and taking care of the children and families of our fallen heroes.”
The donation is part of a $1 million pledge made to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary through Guns for Great Causes, a charitable branch of the company.
“FRCF is deeply grateful to Anthony Imperato and Henry Repeating Arms for their generous commitment to supporting first responders and their children. This donation will help to support our mental health resiliency program, which provides confidential, trauma-informed counseling at no cost to children of first responders,” says FRCF president and CEO Jillian Crane. “Henry is an iconic American family-owned business supporting the first responder community since day one. This partnership will make a real difference in the lives of first responder families.”
For the past 25, Henry’s Guns for Great Causes has helped a wide variety of beneficiaries, including individual families of sick children going through medical treatments, children’s hospitals, military veteran organizations, law enforcement and first responder groups, and wildlife and habitat conservation agencies.
