The Hero Collection by NYCountry Swag is inspired by the men and women of the Fire & Police Departments across the country. We are dedicated to honoring their service and remembering their sacrifice.
10% of each sale from this collection is donated to different organizations and charities affiliated with fire & police departments nationwide. After our launch in May 2017, we raised funds for several organizations like The FDNY Captain Timothy Stackpole Foundation, ANSWER THE CALL – New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund and Building Homes For Heroes.
We are proud to announce that our August Organization of the Month is The Steve Belson Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Steve Belson was a surfer, a Rockaway Beach Lifeguard and a proud member of the FDNY. On September 11, 2001, Belson lost his life in the World Trade Center. The life of Steve Belson will be celebrated on Saturday, August 5th with the 16th Annual Steve Belson Memorial Ocean Swim and Music Festival.
The event not only honors Belson, but serves as a fundraiser for fellow lifeguards as all money raised awards participating lifeguards with scholarship opportunities. The event kicks off on Beach 92nd Street with a half mile ocean swim, followed by live music at Bungalow Bar. NYCountry Swag will be popping up at Bungalow, selling items from our Hero Collection, where a portion of sales will be donated to The Steve Belson Memorial Scholarship Fund. NYCountry Swag is extending this initiative and will also donate 10% of all sales from nycountryswag.com, during the month of August, to this fund.
In addition, we have added a Limited Edition Orange Line Ball Cap to our Hero Collection, dedicated to Steve Belson.
NYCountry Swag is proud to support The Steve Belson Memorial Scholarship Fund. You can help us, by purchasing and representing from our Hero Collection. Our goal with this collection is to help expose the daily heroism of our first responders.
Thank You for your support! – Team NYCS
