Purchase a two-pack of Springfield Armory’s face masks to reduce the risk of you and your loved ones from catching Covid-19, and all of the proceeds go directly to the airfare provided by Luke’s Wings—a nonprofit organization that provides complimentary airfare to reunite wounded, ill and injured service members with their families.
The masks are not medical-grade, but there’s no denying the therapeutic value of the organization’s efforts. It was founded in 2008 and has already provided 5,600 round trips, free of charge, to bring family close to someone serving in the U.S. military who is facing a serious health challenge.
Recent concerns surrounding travel and COVID-19 has greatly impacted the organization’s mission. “For so many of our beneficiaries, this means extended time between critical visits from loved ones as they recover at military medical centers across the country,” explained Lindsay Gill, executive director of Luke’s Wings. “As our nation cautiously returns to normal, warrior families are eager, now more than ever, to be reunited with their heroes…In order to support our wounded, ill, and injured service members, it is critical to raise the resources needed to book these flights in the coming weeks.”
Springfield Armory is selling the logo masks on its web store as a pack of two for $19.99. The company is also offering free shipping with code MASK entered at checkout.
“We are honored to be part of an effort that can make a lasting impact on our military members and their families, especially under such trying circumstances,” says Stefany Reese Toomer, brand communications manager for Springfield Armory. “It’s a gesture of gratitude for those brave individuals who sacrifice so much for us.”
Luke’s Wing’s website explains it efforts are focused exclusively on, “…keeping military families connected on their journey to recovery. These flights bring mental, physical, emotional, and financial support, empowering wounded service members to overcome challenges they face every step of the way.”
