LaCrosse helps Police Relief Effort donating over 650 pairs of boots

Sep '05
Leading branded work and outdoor footwear provider LaCrosse Footwear has donated over 650 pair of rubber boots to the Police Relief Effort in order to equip law enforcement personnel assisting in the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

"Confronting the devastation created by Hurricane Katrina is a responsibility that is shared by all Americans. LaCrosse Footwear are glad to help equip law enforcement officials with the gear they need to safely accomplish their tasks," said Joseph P. Schneider, President and CEO of LaCrosse Footwear Inc.

Health and public safety concerns are paramount considering the dangerous environment created by the aftermath of the hurricane. High quality safety equipment is the first and best line of defense against bacteria, viruses, environmental contaminates and many other dangerous substances. The boots donated by LaCrosse Footwear represent high quality protective footwear and offer the protection and benefits of waterproof construction, steel toe, steel midsole and an outsole that provides enhanced traction.

"Officers in the impacted areas are in serious need of equipment and support and I would like to thank LaCrosse Footwear for its donation and commitment to the law enforcement community. It is companies like LaCrosse, and the numerous other donors, that make this effort possible," said Sheriff Mike Brown of Bedford County Sheriff's Office, who is organizing the Police Relief Effort. Sheriff Brown is also a member of theBoard of Directors of the National Sheriffs Association.
