Henry Repeating Helps Small

During a National First Responders Day ceremony in Times Square, Anthony Imperato, founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms, made a $25,000 donation to the First Responders Children’s Foundation. In December 2022, he also made $50,000 donation as part of his company’s Guns for Great Causes charitable program, which raised more than $1 million last year for a variety of organizations as part of the company’s 25th anniversary.

“Our mission with Guns for Great Causes and the mission of the First Responders Children’s Foundation go hand-in-hand, and it’s all about the kids,” said Imperato. “These children have parents that dedicate their lives to saving others day in and day out. Not coming home at the end of a shift is unimaginable, especially from the child’s point of view, and I am grateful to be able to lend our continued support to this organization that leads the way in helping to heal those wounds.”

Henry Repeating Arms’ donation was made in recognition of National First Responders Day, which is celebrated every year on Oct. 28. The event honors the professionals committed to protecting communities all over America with selfless compassion for the lives they serve.

The First Responders Children’s Foundation was founded in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks when 800 children lost a first responder parent in the line of duty. Today, the nationally acclaimed organization provides financial and community support to the children and families of fallen first responders.

Last year, it provided 343 scholarships valued at $102,828 for qualifying children. It also runs a Mental Health Resiliency Program for children who have lost a first-responder parent and offers bereavement assistance. With the holidays quickly approaching, its Toy Express program is already working overtime to top the 100,000 toys it delivered in 2022.
