We Raised $60,000 and Donated 10,000 Gloves to Team Rubicon Disaster Relief

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

We're builders, laborers, craftsmen, mechanics, first responders and servicemembers. We live to create and work with our hands, be outside in the elements, work side-by-side with our crew and shoot the sh!t on the jobsite. We break things down (we also break things) systematically and solve problems because we understand cooler heads prevail. We stand for what's right and lend a helping hand to our neighbors.

Our mission was to raise $60,000 through the sales of MultiCam Face Masks to Team Rubicon, an organization which serves communities by mobilizing veterans to respond to disasters and humanitarian crises. The funds will will support the non-profit’s COVID-19 response efforts including their #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors initiative. In addition to the financial support, we donated over 10,000 pairs of work gloves to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) for Team Rubicon volunteers to aid in the nonprofit’s pandemic missions.

There is no playbook for this situation, but action is the only option.

The donation will provide critical funds and PPE for the veteran-led humanitarian organization as Team Rubicon continues to adapt its response capabilities for the COVID-19 outbreak. The #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors initiative provides volunteers with the opportunity to perform individual acts of service through food banks and delivery services to food-insecure populations. Team Rubicon has also helped its partners through direct medical response such as running mobile testing sites and providing on-site medical assistance during this crisis.

Wear a Mask. Support the Recovery.

We committed 20% of face mask sales to Team Rubicon. We understand the importance of having PPE and the impact it can have in stopping the transmission of COVID-19, as well as the need for PPE to aid in relief efforts. Our hope is that this donation will ensure Team Rubicon has the funding and the specialized equipment needed to stay safe as they continue to rebuild and restore hope in the communities that need it the most.

CORDURA NYCO fabric provides the perfect blend of abrasion resistance, tear resistance, and comfort to help fight the spread.

We're Sending 10,000 Pairs of Gloves to Team Rubicon

5 pallets. 3,000 pounds. 10,000 sets of hardwearing work gloves for Team Rubicon volunteers. Mechanix Wear has supported Team Rubicon in the past with large glove donations during natural disaster operations. Across five separate donations since 2013, Mechanix Wear has donated more than $300,000 worth of gloves toward Team Rubicon’s global relief efforts.

“We appreciate the thoughtful contribution and donation to our organization and disaster relief efforts,” said Cal Verdin, Senior Associate of Operational Logistics at Team Rubicon.

We rely heavily on personal protective equipment for everything from debris removal to muck-outs and roof repairs.

With the current crisis, we are relying on PPE more than ever to keep our Greyshirts safe as they serve our at-risk communities. These resources will be an immense assist for Team Rubicon to continue providing a cleaner, clearer path to the rebuild process for underserved communities and our at-risk neighbors.”
