This month, we’re rolling out new gear, with a portion of the proceeds supporting the military community.

May is Military Appreciation Month, a chance to recognize veterans and active-duty service members around the world. What better way to show our appreciation for them than with our new apparel that supports a great cause.

This month Verizon is rolling out new military apparel as part of our efforts to give back to the military community. We partnered with CallForFire (CFF), a veteran-owned and operated business, to manufacture these items. 

Starting today, you may purchase military green t-shirts, camo-themed sweatshirts, and baseball caps, with a portion of the proceeds supporting veterans and military causes.

These veteran nonprofit organizations will receive a portion of the $8 per apparel purchase on behalf of Verizon: 

FourBlock is focused on changing the process of transitioning and hiring veterans. FourBlock aims to equip transitioning veterans to pursue careers that truly fit their calling. This organization has a mission to shape the future for a new generation of veterans.

Mission 22 supports veterans with rehabilitation services for those with PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and substance abuse, and is dedicated to healing America's veterans. This organization has a direct focus on rehabilitation and decreasing the veteran suicide rate of 22 per day. 

Semper K9’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for wounded, critically ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families by providing them assistance dogs. Using rescued and donated dogs, SemperK9 provides service dogs for psychiatric alert and mobility challenges free of charge to wounded service members.

In addition, Call for Fire will donate an additional 20% of the purchase price to these organizations for all purchases on or before May 25.

Show your support this Military Appreciation Month by purchasing these items from Call for Fire for yourself or loved ones who have served or are active-duty— you don’t have to have military service to support this great cause!
