Henry Fallen Firefighters

Henry Repeating Arms recently presented a $25,000 check to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF), a nonprofit organization that provides support and programs for the families and co-workers of firefighters killed in the line of duty. NFFF was chartered by Congress in 1992 and operates on private donations to award educational and job-training scholarships to the spouses and children left behind, as well as aiding departments as they cope with the loss of a valued team member.

“Firefighters are a special breed, and those of us that witnessed their deeply ingrained bravery, camaraderie and sharp instincts on display during the terrorist attacks of 2001 will never forget it,” remarked Anthony Imperato, CEO and founder of Henry Repeating Arms. “The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has established itself as a beacon of care and hospitality when tragedy strikes, and for that, they will always have our support.”

Part of the donation will support the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend. The annual event pays tribute to the firefighters who died in service the year prior and brings together the immediate family members for additional programs.

Henry Repeating Arms was established in 1996 and its charitable branch, Guns for Great Causes, has a lengthy history of raising funds for a variety of organizations and charitable causes. Arguably its most heartwarming efforts come to the aid of families under the financial strain of a child facing serious health issues. Last year, for example, it donated 50 engraved “Danica Strong” Golden Boy rimfire rifles to help cover expenses faced by parents whose daughter unfortunately succumbed to brain cancer.

Since June 2022, Henry Repeating Arms has donated $275,000 to organizations benefiting first responders and their families. For more than a decade, the gunmaker has included the ornately engraved, hand-painted and 24-karat gold-plated Firefighter Tribute Edition rifle as part of its permanent product catalog.
