ROCKFORD, Mich. (June 2015) – In honor of Military Appreciation Month, Bates recognized those who serve and have served by giving back to a military related charity. During the month of May, Bates donated a portion of all online sales at www.batesfootwear.com to Boot Campaign.
“Bates is privileged to continue our partnership with Boot Campaign and honor our service members during Military Appreciation Month,” said Andrew Fowler, VP & General Manager, Bates Footwear. “The opportunity to provide support to those who protect our freedom is at the heart of Bates and Boot Campaign.”
Over the month long campaign, Bates raised over $8,000.00 to help support the national charitable organization that raises awareness of the challenges that service members face during and post-service.
Established in 2009, Boot Campaign provides assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. These programs aim to bridge the gap between government military assistance programs and the reality veterans face when returning home.
