Boxing up Holiday cheer in an unexpected way

backstoppersWe’re thankful for another year on the books as the Holiday season kicks into full swing. When this time of year rolls around, we take a step back from tensile strength, beveling, miter cuts and wall thickness and we focus on giving back and saying thanks. This year, in lieu of client gifts, we decided to give back in a different way.

We’re supporting the police officers, firefighters and EMS workers who often go unthanked. They risk life and limb to protect, serve and even save each and every one of us. As our chance to help serve those who serve us, we’re giving back to The Backstoppers. The Backstoppers are committed to helping the families of those fallen heroes.

“The Backstoppers is a great organization,” said Al Rheinnecker, CEO of American Piping Products. “When a hero loses their life in the line of duty, they step in to support those families through the hardship. We couldn’t be more proud or honored to support The Backstoppers and all of their efforts. We’re glad to give to such a fine organization on behalf of our clients.”

The Backstoppers provide financial support that police, fire and EMS families can lean on after the loss of a loved one in the line of duty. Part of our support this year included ringside attendance at the largest fundraiser for The Backstoppers, Guns ‘N Hoses. At the high-profile event, firefighters and police officers step into the ring to battle it out – all for a deserving cause, their fallen brothers, sisters and The Backstoppers.
