Donation Will Help Rebuild the Shattered Lives of Survivors and Co-Workers Affected by Line-of-Duty Deaths
Rice Lake, WI – Oct. 17, 2022
At the International Association of Chiefs of Police Convention in Dallas, Texas, Henry Repeating Arms added another non-profit to the growing list of organizations benefitting from the company’s $1,000,000 donation pledge. Dan Clayton-Luce, Henry Repeating Arms’ Communications Director, presented a $25,000 check for Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to National President Patricia Carruth and Executive Director Dianne Bernard.
“Growing up in my family’s police equipment shop instilled a longstanding and deep respect for our country’s law enforcement officers and what they endure,” said Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato. He continued, “An officer not returning home to their family after heading out for another day’s work is unimaginable and a heartbreaking reality. I commend Concerns of Police Survivors and their entire team for their work that is needed now more than ever.”
Chartered in 1984, C.O.P.S. provides resources to the families and co-workers of the 140 to 160 officers killed in the line of duty each year. With more than 50 chapters nationwide, a national board of law enforcement survivors governs a membership base of over 65,000 survivors. Assistance programs include scholarships, peer support at the national, state, and local levels, reimbursement programs for children’s counseling, camps, retreats, legal support, and training programs for law enforcement agencies to properly handle their response to the tragedy of losing an officer.
C.O.P.S. boasts a Four-Star rating on Charity Navigator with a perfect score of 100 out of 100 for its financial reporting, accountability, and transparency. Donors can give with confidence and learn more at concernsofpolicesurvivors.org.
Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, is celebrating twenty-five years of its charitable branch, dubbed “Guns For Great Causes,” by donating all proceeds of a limited-edition Golden Boy Silver Anniversary rifle. Since July, the company has donated more than $230,000 as part of its $1,000,000 pledge to benefit children’s hospitals, military veterans, law enforcement and other first responders, wildlife and habitat conservation, and more.
