Menomonee Falls, Wis. — Bradley Corporation’s industry partnership with American Supply Association (ASA) has raised $55,665 for Operation Rise and Conquer (ORC), a non-profit organization that provides opportunities to wounded veterans to experience a variety of inspiring and empowering outdoor adventures in the Colorado Rockies.
This summer, Bradley joined with ASA and ASA Young Executives (ASAYE) in achieving their campaign goal of raising $100,000 for Operation Rise and Conquer. During the campaign, which was held June 1 – August 31, Bradley tracked sales to ASA members, and .5% of every dollar of the tracked sales was donated to ORC to help reach ASA’s and ASAYE’s goal and support ORC activities.
“Bradley is proud to play a part in achieving ASA’s goal and appreciative of all of the ASA members who joined us in support of Operation Rise and Conquer,” said Christopher Mullett, vice president of sales, Bradley Plumbing Group, Bradley. “We couldn’t have achieved our goal without their involvement.”
Operation Rise and Conquer empowers and inspires wounded veterans to regain confidence and trust in themselves and others. The program offers outdoor adventures such as rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, off-road biking, horseback riding and rafting to service members who have been wounded or disabled.
“Throughout our campaign, we’ve heard from so many who truly believe in the ORC program and know how important this organization is to our wounded service men and women,” Mullett said. “We’re glad to be part of such an impactful program.”
Bradley will present their contribution to ASA and Operation Rise and Conquer representatives at the ASA Annual Meeting being held October 27-29 in Chicago.
