PORTLAND, OREGON (September 1, 2018) – GERBER, a leading direct supplier of mission-essential knives, tools, and equipment to the US Military, is proud to support Team Rubicon by donating 10% of all proceeds made during the month of September through www.gerbergear.com in acknowledgment of National Preparedness Month.
Team Rubicon is a non-profit organization whose primary mission is to provide disaster relief in underserved communities. This is done by uniting the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams domestically and internationally.
At the root of Gerber’s on-going partnership with Team Rubicon is a mutual dedication to the veteran community, a hunger to solve problems, and an Unstoppable spirit. Gerber equips deploying teams with knives, multi-tools, and gear that are immediately put to work in Mother Nature’s wake, working tirelessly to rebuild a sense of home and hope.
As Team Rubicon puts it: “Disasters are our business. Veterans are our passion.”
Gerber’s partnership with Team Rubicon extends several years, offering support through product donations for member kits, event attendance, and new this month: a portion of website sales. Gerber products deploy alongside the Greyshirts to serve worldwide in disaster zones – see which products have earned their place in the toolbelt.
“We believe the unwavering strength and determination of our service members continues well beyond their time in active duty.” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, General Manager of Gerber. “Team Rubicon confirms this belief and leverages the American veteran’s unique skill set in remarkable ways. We are honored to stand behind Team Rubicon and provide support to their members and mission whenever we can.”
