May 26th update: Together, the FCP Euro community raised $44,088 for the PenFed Foundation and Save A Suit over the course of Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to those that contributed and helped spread the word. Below, you'll find links to contribute directly or donate professional attire to veterans in need.
Around the globe, we are all going through unprecedented times. At FCP Euro, we are grateful and fortunate to be in a position to help support those around us. As Memorial Day approaches, we are especially grateful for our servicemen and women, their efforts and sacrifices, and their families.
This Memorial Day weekend, FCP Euro will be donating 5% of all sales from Friday, May 22nd through Monday, May 25th, to programs that directly support veterans and active service members with the goal of donating over $50,000. Join us in supporting the nonprofit organizations below:
Since 2001, the PenFed Foundation has provided more than $38.5 million in financial support to veterans, active duty service members, families, and caregivers. You can learn about all of their programs here.
The PenFed Foundation was the first national Veterans Service Organization (VSO) to launch its COVID-19 Relief Program for emergency financial assistance in March 2020. The response to the program has been overwhelming, with over 6,000 applications in the first four days.
The PenFed Foundation is in urgent need of donations to be able to continue supporting the financial stability and opportunity our military and veterans so greatly need and deserve.
Save A Suit is a nonprofit organization that provides military veterans with professional attire and the confidence they need to succeed. They also provide other resources and support to help our veterans transition from a military to a civilian career. Since 2009, they have provided more than $2 Million in professional attire and other resources to 5,000-plus heroes. You can find more about their programs here.
Save A Suit currently has 500 veterans awaiting a donated suit. FCP Euro will provide a prepaid shipping label to any customer that would like to donate theirs. Save A Suit is always looking for attire to outfit our veterans with confidence so they can put their best selves forward as they navigate their new careers.
Additionally, $40 allows Save a Suit to ship a suit, shirt, and tie (or a suit and a dress shirt for ladies) to a veteran in need. You can sponsor a veteran at any time by simply clicking here and donating $40 to the cause. Once Save a Suit receives your donation, they will ship a professional outfit to a veteran in need.
Outside of our veterans, we also recognize that everybody is affected in some way by the pandemic, whether physically, emotionally, or financially. If you or someone in the car community needs help, please reach out to me directly with the situation and how we may be able to assist.
