Rothco Gives to Its Employees So We Can Give to the Community

There are a number of perks to working for the biggest and hottest military brand in the U.S. Selling and marketing such a diverse and in-demand product line is a lot of fun and getting to help develop and use these is even more fun.

On a more serious note, Rothco is extremely supportive in regards to their employees involvement in benevolent programs and charities, such as a matching charitable donations to local charities in our Holiday Charity Program. Another wonderful program we have is our volunteer program where Rothco employees are encouraged to help out in the community and can use a work day to do so.

A couple of weeks ago I spent a day helping a family in Mastic Beach, Long Island whose house was flooded during Hurricane Sandy. I was there along with some folks from the Evangelical Covenant Church in East Northport and other Covenanters from Minnnesota, Iowa and Texas who came as part of a mission project via Covenant Merge Ministries. It is a very grassroots effort as we found out about their need from another church in their area. It seems an unscrupulous contractor had sheetrocked over water-damaged walls and then left with the homeowner's money. Unfortunately, they didn't have additional funds to pay for further repairs so local volunteers have come in stages to help them out.

Rothco's support of its team members in these endeavors is just another example of our support for the people of Long Island community and I'm very glad to have been a part of that.
