Lion Cares

Each one of you helps your community every day by simply showing up to do your job. The least we can do is support your communities.

LION Supports Our Industry
LION is proud to partner with other organizations that share our commitment to first responders. We are proud to be longtime partners with organizations such as the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, Fire 20/20 and Firefighter Combat Challenge, among others.

LION Foundation Charitable Grants
LION awards grants to community organizations dedicated to serving the interests of first responders, public safety, education, the arts and social welfare. Grants range from $500 to $2,000.

Deadlines for letter of interest are May 1 and December 1 of each calendar year. Awards are made in January and June of each calendar year. Download a LION Foundation Charitable Grant Application and email the completed application to LionConnects@lionapparel.com.

LION Pink Helmet Program to Support Breast Cancer Awareness
We supply personal protective equipment to police departments and firehouses all over the world. And you have high visibility in your community every time you dress for duty. Think of what we can do — together — to raise money for breast cancer treatment and research.

Every year we offer pink modern style Legacy 5™ and traditional style American Classic™ helmets that firefighters can wear to show their support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. And then we donate proceeds from pink helmet sales to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in your name. For information, call 800.421.2926.

LION and the Pink Heals Tour
Join us in our support of the Guardians of the Ribbon Pink Heals Tour and their “Cares Enough to Wear Pink Campaign” for 2010. Fan up the cause and show your support at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=23101466932. Then join the Tour when it comes to your city.

LION and the Chicago Fire Fighters Run for the Kids
We’re proud to be a sponsor of the Chicago Fire Fighters Run for the Kids, which has — since its inception in 2001 — raised over $230,000 to help children throughout Illinois. This event provides funds to organizations dedicated to serving the needs of children and their families — such as pediatric burn prevention and recovery, providing smoke detectors to families, youth development and coping with life-threatening illnesses.
