Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday is a movement which celebrates and supports the act of giving during the holiday season. This special day harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. 

Rothco is dedicated to giving back to the community, which has allowed us to flourish over the past 65 plus years. Which is why #GivingTuesday - is a perfect day to not only highlight Rothco's charity efforts but to shine a light on the charities themselves and fuel a greater awareness to such worthy causes. 

Throughout the year, Rothco makes a commitment to give back to our community with several charitable and volunteer programs, including: 

  • Rothco's Holiday Charity Program - For over two decades, Rothco employees have come together every holiday season to donate money to local grassroots charities. For every dollar raised by our employees, Rothco triples that donation!!! In 2017, our Christmas Charity Program raised over $500,000 and for 2018 we have already raised over $42,000. The money raised by Rothco and its employees will go to help several different local charities including The Suffolk County United Veterans Program, Hope House, Pronto, Angela's House, Gerald Ryan Outreach Center, A Mother's Kiss, Lighthouse Mission, and Long Island Against Domestic Violence. 
  • This past Thanksgiving Rothco Donated over 70 Turkeys to local food kitchens and outreach programs 
  • In 2018, Rothco employees have come together to volunteer over 50 hours of their time to numerous charity events 
  • Holiday Gift Program - this year Rothco's employees with help spread some holiday cheer by partnering with a local organization to give holiday gifts to underprivileged children in Suffolk County, NY 
  • Donated $24,000 to the organization Answer the Call via sales of our Thin Blue Line Merchandise

Collaboration and community are two key words that sum up Rothco's Charity Programs.

Fast Mover On The Move

We had the pleasure of taking our Fast Mover Tactical Pack on a short hike through the woods and we must say it was epic! When it came to space, the pack had plenty of room to fit all the essentials items needed for the hike and then some. The pack also served an A+ performance in the durability and comfort department, due to its well crafted denier polyester shell and contoured straps. Take a look at the photo below and be sure to head over to Rothco.com to get your own!

Supporting Our Local Veterans



On Veterans Day, we honor the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces for their courage and sacrifice for our country. The sacrifices and service of our veterans is not lost on Rothco, and that is why we have made a steadfast commitment to giving back to the local men and women of our military.

For the fourth year in a row, Rothco has collaborated with a local organization here on Long Island called General Needs, to provide boots to our homeless veterans in our area. This Veterans Day, Rothco was able to donate around $50,000 in military and cold weather boots to Veterans across Long Island. Over the past few years, Rothco has donated thousands of boots to our military veterans. 

The thought that our boots could help a soldier who has fallen on hard times is truly amazing. While our small act, will in no way pay them back for all that they have done for our country. It is a reminder that even the smallest act of kindness, can go a long way. That is why Rothco is always looking for ways to help our Veterans. In addition to the project with General Needs, Rothco also works in close collaboration with the Suffolk County United Veterans Organization. As a local company, Rothco realizes how important it is for us to give back to the community that has helped us grow and to honor the men and women of our military for their service today, and every day.
