SportEAR Donates Hearing Protection and Portion of Sales to Wounded Veterans Waterfowl Club

posted on May 30, 2016

In honor of Memorial Day, SportEAR is partnering with the Wounded Veterans Waterfowl Club (WVWC) to give combat veterans a free day in the field. Axil, the parent company of SportEAR, is donating hearing protection and a portion of this week's sales to the WVWC. A portion of all sales generated between Monday, May 30 and Friday, June 3 will be donated.

"Many of our customers are military veterans," said Axil CEO Weston Harris. "They are an at-risk group for hearing damage. Through our partnership with Wounded Veterans Waterfowl Club, we hope to help veterans repair more than just their hearing. We will be a part of an overall system that supports active and returning veterans in need."

The Wounded Veterans Waterfowl Club is a non-profit organization made for veterans, by veterans, with the mission to give military and military-affiliated individuals a complete hunting experience free of charge.

"I was out on a hunt with a friend of mine, who is also a veteran," said Corey Doughetry, WVWC founder. "While we were waiting there he turned to me and gave me this deep, heartfelt 'thank you.' I found out later that he nearly committed suicide the night before, but being outdoors in the beauty of nature gave him a new appreciation for life."

SportEAR will be providing its X-Pro Earplugs and M-4 Series Electronic Ear Muffs to the WVWC.
