Nearly $100,000 was raised for Special Operations Wounded Warriors (SOWW) through purchases made on during Veterans Day week earlier this month. The company pledged to give a percentage of its sales to U.S. customers between November 7 and November 11 to the organization and was able to write the big check to the 501(c)(3) veterans charity to support its various programs.

“Special Operations Wounded Warriors does important work supporting some of America’s most outstanding men and women,” said Brownells Vice President of Marketing Ryan Repp. “We’d like to thank our customers for helping us support SOWW.”

The donation will allow SOWW to continue its mission of providing therapeutic outdoor experiences, professional therapy and other services to wounded veterans of the United States Special Operations community.

“Brownells has been helping SOWW since the organization started,” Repp said when the event was announced. “We’re proud to support SOWW’s mission, and the men and women who have done so much under very tough circumstances for the United States.”

SOWW programs include outdoor experiences for wounded SOCOM veterans, a K9 effort that matches qualified individuals with service dogs, an Operator Reset Week—with one-on-one attention from clinicians—and more. Regaining healthy functioning in the civilian world is the primary focus of the group’s programs. The organization formed in August of 2012 for the distinct purpose of providing outdoor experiences to a select group of both active-duty and veteran U.S. military special operations forces, that have received wounds in battle, and have received our country’s prestigious Purple Heart Medal.

Brownells was established in 1939 and has grown to become a leading source for firearms, gun parts and accessories, ammunition, gunsmithing tools and survival gear. It offers everything shooting-related, a variety of outdoor gear and has gunsmiths and experts on hand to help make the right choice.
