Memorial Day: Sportsman’s Box Partners with Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation to Benefit Purple Heart Veterans

Sportsman’s Box has recently joined forces with Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation (WWIA) in support of their mission to send Purple Heart recipients on world-class hunting and fishing trips. Sportsman’s box will donate a percentage of subscription sales to WWIA and give their customers an opportunity to purchase a box of hunting and fishing gear for a combat-wounded veteran.

“This is what Sportsman’s Box and being a Sportsman and woman is all about,” said Adam Whitehead, the company’s CEO. “We in the outdoor sporting community pride ourselves on our commitment to land conservation and giving back. We fell in love with WWIA’s mission and said, well, let’s help get more heroes outdoors! With this partnership, our customers know that a portion of each box they purchase is going to help send a Purple Heart veteran on a hunting or fishing trip.”

Sportsman’s Box will donate 8% of subscription sales to WWIA when customers shop using this link: http://www.sportsmansbox.com?rfsn=239559.cc6a2 In addition to their own subscription, customers can buy a Sportsman’s Box for a Wounded Warrior at checkout. The box, full of hand-picked hunting gear, will be presented to a Purple Heart veteran when he or she attends a WWIA event.

WWIA serves nearly 200 Purple Heart Recipients each year in 38 states and 3 foreign countries. Through opportunities like whitetail deer hunting in Tennessee, bear hunting in Canada, halibut fishing in Alaska, and gator hunting in Florida, these Heroes experience a wide variety of opportunities that fulfill lifelong dreams. While the harvest can be exciting, the main event on these trips is the opportunity to connect with other Purple Heart recipients and the larger hunting and fishing community.

“The partnership with Sportsman’s Box is a big win for our Wounded Warriors because they receive the world-class treatment they so deserve. And it’s a big win for the American Sportsmen and women who want to give back,” said John McDaniel, WWIA’s Founder and CEO. “The opportunity to support Heroes on these events is a great way for communities to thank our combat-wounded veterans for the sacrifices they’ve made.”
