5.11 Tactical Partners with Outreach Organizations
5.11 Tactical makes an ongoing investment in support of the mission-ready preparedness of first responders, police, and military personnel.
When they released their Defender-Flex pant and jean, they partnered with 3 charity ambassadors in support of their efforts: Tim Kennedy of the Sheepdog Fund, Jolie Gentry Macias of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and Andy Stumpf of the Navy Seal Foundation.
“From September through October, 5.11 will be donating a portion of sales from the Defender Flex pant and jean. Each of these charities will receive up to $20,000 in donations.”
The Sheepdog Fund raises money to help law enforcement, military, and other first responders get the best training possible and the best equipment possible, free of cost to them and their departments.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is dedicated to telling the story of American Law Enforcement and making it safer for those who serve. The Fund maintains the largest, most comprehensive database of line-of-duty officer deaths, conducts research into officer fatality trends and issues, and serves as an information clearinghouse.
The Navy SEAL Foundation is focused on preserving the Naval Special Warfare force and their families, providing a comprehensive set of programs specifically designed for the health, welfare, resiliency, and education of families. The foundation provides critical support to the families during times of illness, injury, loss and transition.
Another endeavor toward community outreach is the Quiet Warrior program, a collaboration between 5.11 Tactical and PoliceOne. The purpose of this program is to bring to light great stories of professionalism, heroism, and compasion within the law enforcement community.
Officer Jennifer Maddox was recently featured as a Quiet Warrior for her work with Future Ties, a program that she established in 2007. The program began in a basement with snacks and board games, and has grown to a not-for-profit organization. In the last ten years, Future ties has served hundreds of children, working with community groups and making possible for teens to go to summer camp, learn workforce skills, social skills, money management and conflict resolution.
“Policing is a true service, and sometimes it’s more than just the lock ‘em up, arrest ‘em, write a ticket stuff,” she said. “… Maybe that’ll be one less domestic call we get because that’s a household we helped stabilize a little bit.”
Kudos to 5.11 Tactical for engaging in these community outreach programs.
