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 the month of May, we raised and donated $1,412.55 to the The FDNY Captain Timothy Stackpole Foundation!
We are proud to announce that our June Organization of the Month is ANSWER THE CALL – New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund.
The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, known as Answer the Call for short, is the only non-profit organization that provides both immediate and ongoing support to the families of NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD heroes killed in the line of duty.
The Benefit Fund was founded in 1985 by former NY Met Daniel J. “Rusty” Staub. Since its inception, the Benefit Fund has distributed over $140 million to the families of our fallen first responders who have been killed in the line of duty. In 2017 alone, they will help approximately 580 families and will distribute over $4 million.
When our brave men and women in uniform make the ultimate sacrifice to protect our city, the Benefit Fund believes it is our duty to support the families these heroes have left behind. Their mission is to reassure these families that we will never forget about them or the sacrifice made by their loved ones.
NYCountry Swag is proud to support such an honorable and noteworthy organization. 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
