As part of a $1,000,000 charitable pledge in honor of Henry Repeating Arms’ 25th anniversary, company president Andy Wickstrom presented a $50,000 check to Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander-In-Chief Matthew M. “Fritz” Mihelcic during Wednesday’s proceedings at the 123rd VFW National Convention in Kansas City.
“Henry Repeating Arms has been a longtime supporter of organizations that take care of our veterans, and no one does that better than the VFW,” says Wickstrom while addressing the crowd. In late 2016 Henry Repeating Arms partnered with the VFW to establish a fundraising program that would raise money on a national level and offer individual posts the opportunity to enhance their fundraising efforts. Other direct monetary contributions to the organization now total more than $150,000. Wickstrom continues, “We believe in the VFW’s mission and vision and respect its extraordinary accomplishments.”
