Lexington, Ken. (May 2021) - GALLS, LLC®, the leading distributor of uniforms and equipment to public safety agencies, and private label products, is proud to announce the signing of a strategic partnership with Fund the First, a crowdfunding platform for first responders, military, and medical professionals.
The partnership establishes GALLS, LLC as the official tactical supply sponsor of the Fund the First platform.
Founded by NYPD Detective Robert Garland, Fund the First stops the cycle of scams and corruption commonly seen on other donation-based crowdfunding platforms by fully verifying every campaign to ensure that it is legitimate and proceeds go directly to the first responder, military member, medical professional, or his/her family. With Fund the First, America’s heroes have a trusted place to go, to give, and to get the support they need.
“We are excited to announce the partnership with GALLS as we expand our brand into the households of many more first responders, military, and medical professionals. With over 50 years of our nation’s heroes trusting GALLS to supply their essential gear and supplies needs, it is easy to see how a partnership with them makes sense. We will now be able to offer our platform users with exclusive discounts and perks to GALLS, LLC,” Garland said.
Mike Fadden is the CEO of GALLS and a big supporter of Fund the First. “We’ve been searching for a great partner to further GALLS’ desire to support the first responder community. GALLS is excited to use our national footprint and web presence to help Fund the First grow and, in doing so, help first responders and their families raise the money that they desperately need and richly deserve. I look forward to a long relationship with Fund the First.”
