Showing its support for the U.S. troops, Bates Footwear has joined forces with the Boot Campaign. You may remember this nonprofit organization from Military Boots Blog‘s article, “Dolly Parton Laces Up for Boot Campaign.”
The grassroots movement was started by five Texas women to raise money for charities that assist returning veterans in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. The Boot Girls are working to put one million Americans in their “give back” boots. In an effort to help them achieve this goal, Bates has produced a line of boot styles for the campaign. Proceeds from purchasing the signature boots from the Boot Campaign are donated to their charity of partners including the Lone Survivor Foundation, Not Alone, Wounded Wear, and Military Warriors Support Foundation.
“Bates has the honor of providing footwear to thousands of warfighters each year that selflessly protect our country,” said Ron Woznick, vice president and general manager for Bates Footwear. “Their sacrifices and commitment are simply amazing. We are privileged to begin working more closely with the Boot Campaign, who has done a phenomenal job of drawing attention and supporting our military heroes.”
Many celebrities have donned combat boots in support of the uniformed men and women of this country. Well-known personalities include Dolly Parton, Joe Nichols, Texas Governor Rick Perry, and members of the Detroit Red Wings.
