By end of the first quarter of this year, the American lifestyle brand had disbursed checks to 30 families and units of fallen officers, first responders, and K9s
Smithfield, N.C. — April 23, 2020 — Shield Republic Charities, the charitable arm of the patriotic lifestyle brand Shield Republic, announced today that they have donated more than $106,343.70 in the first quarter of this year to the families of fallen police officers and other first responders.
Funds were raised primarily through numerous “Hold the Line” apparel fundraiser campaigns, through which the company sold honorary t-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, ladies’ tank tops and decals made in the USA. Each Hold the Line campaign honors a recently fallen first responder, police officer, or K9 police dog serving a community in the U.S., with 100 percent of net proceeds from sales through each campaign donated to the fallen officer’s family or unit.
“When we started Shield Republic Charities, we had no idea we’d get this kind of response from our community,” said Charlie Romero, spokesperson for Shield Republic. “That we’ve raised more than $100,000 for our fallen first responders year-to-date speaks to the character of the dedicated and amazing Shield Republic family. We are so appreciative of the outpouring of support and look forward to continuing to raise money for the families of our nation’s fallen heroes.”
