"As part of our $1 million silver anniversary pledge and on behalf of all the employees of Henry Repeating Arms, I am honored to present this $25,000 check to Semper Fi & America's Fund," said Henry CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato, during a fundraising event at the Hudson Farm Club in Hopatcong, New Jersey. "Thank you to all who served our great country and thank you to those who work so hard to make Semper Fi & America's Fund as impactful as it is."
The check presentation preceded a live auction for the first rifle in a three-piece series, which raised $19,000 for the organization. The last rifle in the series is available to the public through an online auction hosted by Henry Repeating Arms. For more information or to place a bid in the virtual auction, visit item #978819602 on Gunbroker.com. All proceeds from the virtual auction will also benefit Semper Fi & America's Fund.
Started in 2003 by a small group of military spouses looking to provide bedside support to the first wave of wounded soldiers and sailors returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom, The Fund is now a nationwide network of staff and volunteers providing programs, immediate financial assistance, and lifelong relationships to service members in need and their families. Since its beginning, The Fund has helped 30,000 service members and given $300 million in assistance.
"Henry Repeating Arms' generous donation will help our nation's service members and their families to achieve the highest possible quality of life and independence," said Karen Guenther, President, CEO, and Founder of Semper Fi & America's Fund. "Our work would not be possible without the support of our donors and their investment in the lives of our military heroes."
Since June 2022, Henry has donated over $750,000 to a wide variety of organizations through the company's charitable branch called Guns for Great Causes, including those assisting the wounded, injured, and the families of those who lost a loved one in the line of duty be it military, law enforcement, or as a first responder.
