- CRC will donate a portion of the proceeds from products sold in July, September, and October 2020
Horsham, PA – CRC Industries, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of specialty products and formulations for maintenance and repair professionals and do-it-yourselfers, has teamed up with NAPA Auto Parts to help raise money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a not-for-profit organization that supports United States military personnel who are suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS).
Founded in 2000, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund builds advanced treatment centers on military bases across the United States and helps provide care to the men and women who serve and have served in the United States military. CRC Industries has partnered with NAPA Auto Parts to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund since 2018. To date, CRC has raised nearly $500,000 to help support military members and their families.
Fall Fundraising Effort
Throughout September and October 2020, a portion of the sales of CRC Industries products at participating NAPA AUTO PARTS stores will be donated to the IFHF. In September, select CRC products will be eligible for the fundraising effort, including Brakleen®, the #1 selling brake parts cleaner worldwide. October’s fundraising will focus on the CRC SmartWasher® bioremediating parts washing system and the award-winning BenchtopPRO®, the first bioremediating benchtop parts washer designed for the small repair shop or home garage.
Perry Cozzone, CRC Industries CEO, spoke on the personal impact of supporting the IFHF, stating, “Although I am not a military veteran, my father is a local medaled WWII hero, my brothers served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars and many of our CRC family are veterans or have family members who served and sacrificed much for many. The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the healing support they provide really hits close to home. We are proud to offer this financial contribution to honor the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country every day.”
“Working together, we have a tremendous opportunity to provide financial support to the IFHF,” added Jason Rainey, Vice President of NAPA AutoCare. “NAPA counts many active duty and retired military among its employees and customers, and we want to show our support for the great sacrifices that they have made.”
About Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF)
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) is a leader in supporting the men and women of the United States armed forces and their families. Established in 2000, IFHF has provided over $200 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded service members and their families. Today IFHF is leading efforts to help service members suffering the terrible effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) by building a series of ten specially-designed treatment facilities, called Intrepid Spirit Centers, at military bases around the nation. Within these centers, service members receive the most advanced and proven care to address the complex symptoms of TBI, with the goal of returning these men and women to their duties in the armed forces. Seven Intrepid Spirit Centers are already open and serving America’s brave service members, and the care provided has allowed more than 90% of patients to continue their service in the armed forces. Construction on the eighth Center began in May 2019. For more information about this effort, visit www.fallenheroesfund.org.
