Streamlight employees present a check to C.O.P.S. for $128,700.
The flashlight maker has supported this organization for 17
years through sales of its Blue Nano Light.
Streamlight Inc. has renewed its sponsorship of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), participating in a variety of fund-raising events and incentives. Now in its 17th year of sponsoring C.O.P.S., Streamlight’s support helps to underwrite ongoing programs and activities for survivors of fallen officers.
The company’s contribution for 2016 totaled $128,700, including $13,700 in proceeds from sales of its Blue Nano Light. Streamlight earmarks a dollar from the sale of each Blue Nano LED keychain flashlight for C.O.P.S. The keychain features the C.O.P.S. logo on one side and the Streamlight logo on the other.
In June, Streamlight hosted its 2nd Annual C.O.P.S. 5K/Fun Walk at Lower Perkiomen Valley Park Trail in Oaks, Pa., near company headquarters. Streamlight employees and associates participating in the run raised more than $4,000.
Streamlight again served as a major sponsor of the C.O.P.S. annual survivor’s luncheon during National Police Week, May 15–21, in Washington, D.C. The company also was a sponsor of Law Enforcement United’s “The Road to Hope” memorial bicycle ride, which helps to raise money for C.O.P.S. programs.
Streamlight recently introduced a Blue model of the Streamlight Siege AA ultra-compact lantern, featuring one white and two blue LEDS. The company will donate $2 from the sale of each lantern, which features the C.O.P.S. logo on its globe, to C.O.P.S.
Streamlight supports or sponsors additional C.O.P.S. programs throughout the year, among them C.O.P.S. Kids Camp, C.O.P.S. Outward Bound, the Affected Co-Workers Retreat, the Annual C.O.P.S. Walk and hands-on retreats for siblings, surviving spouses, parents, adult children, in-laws and significant others.
“Streamlight salutes C.O.P.S.’ invaluable work in helping survivors of the fallen rebuild their lives. As the lighting tool brand of choice by first responders, we feel a deep commitment to give back to the law enforcement community. We are very proud to help this fine organization,” said Streamlight President and CEO Ray Sharrah.
