Federal, Remington Ammo Donate $100,000 to Ukraine
In another sign of solidarity with Ukraine as it fends off a Russian invasion for the third month, both Remington and Federal Ammunition signed a check for $100,000 to support crisis relief for Ukrainian citizens this week. The funds come from the two companies’ joint sales of their “I Need Ammo Not A Ride” T-shirts.
“This campaign and the tremendous response exceeded our expectations forcing several re-orders of the t-shirts,” says Jason Vanderbrink, president of Federal Ammunition, Remington, CCI, and Speer. "I’m so proud of our loyal customers for being willing to pitch in and support the people of Ukraine who are suffering because of the horrors of war. Our ammunition brands are proud to do our part.”
Both Remington Ammunition and Federal Ammunition continue to offer the shirts on their websites. The design is built around a reported rallying call from embattled Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, which asked for ammo to fight with instead of a free ride to safety.
With stocks moving in and out of supply quickly, consumers can opt to sign up for a notification when restocking is complete for the various sizes. As for the funds raised, they are being directed to the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund.
Federal and its sister brands CCI, Speer, and Remington, also donated a total of one million rounds of ammo to Ukraine’s armed forces. Across the American firearms industry, similar charitable giving operations have continued to pop up since the war began.
