First Responders Children’s Foundation
First Responders Children’s Foundation provides financial support to both children who have lost a parent in the line of duty as well as families enduring significant financial hardships due to tragic circumstances. First Responders Children’s Foundation also supports, promotes, and facilitates educational activities and programs created and operated by law enforcement and firefighting organizations whose purpose is to benefit children or the community at large.
Approximately 225 first responders are killed in the line of duty each year, and each fatality leaves behind an average of 2.3 children. Fortunately, First Responders Children’s Foundation has been striving to meet the needs of these children for the past 19 years. The Foundation also became a charity partner of the PGA TOUR’s The Greenbrier event, “A Military Salute at The Greenbrier,” which will continue each year to coincide with the anniversary of September 11th.
In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis SwingJuice wanted to find a way to help those on the front line of the pandemic. We reached out to the First Responders Children’s Foundation and asked if we could make a donation to them based on sales made from several pandemic-inspired designs we had recently released. We also handed out T-shirts and koozies to all fire fighters in an Oklahoma that we knew had many golfers on their crews. Needless to say, after tirelessly working to help those in the community battling COVID-19, they were grateful to be remembered. May we never forget the sacrifice and service of all first responders.
