NAPA AUTO PARTS is once again launching its “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a not-for-profit organization that serves United States military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. Starting today and running through July, the “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign makes it easy for those interested to contribute to the IFHF, which this year is raising funds to build new facilities focused on the diagnosis and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
IT’S A WIN-WIN: HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign will offer a nationwide text-to-donate program during the month, which allows anyone to text ‘NAPA’ to 27722 to make a $10 donation. NAPA AUTO PARTS and NAPA AutoCare Centers are also offering customers mail-in rebates of up to $25 for every battery, alternator, and starter they purchase during the month. Customers can choose to donate all or a portion of these rebates, and NAPA AUTO PARTS will also donate $1 to the IFHF for any redeemed rebate.

SUPPORT: WHY WE DO IT
“NAPA has a very large military family, including our employees and our customers who have served or are actively serving in the armed forces,” said Gaylord Spencer, VP of Marketing, NAPA AUTO PARTS. “One of our top priorities is ensuring this family has the support it deserves, especially in raising awareness for injuries such as PTSD that are often under funded, unrecognized and untreated. We’re proud to once again partner with the IFHF and make it possible for Americans to contribute to the efforts of the IFHF.”
NAPA employees will swap out their blue and yellow uniforms for grey IFHF shirts during July to raise awareness for the Fund and the Campaign. The IFHF shirts bear the slogan, “We Believe in Heroes” and will be on sale, along with matching camouflage wristbands, on NAPAonline.com. All proceeds from merchandise sales will go to the IFHF.
OUR GOAL: $1 MILLION
One hundred percent of all funds raised during the “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign will go directly to the IFHF. Last year the campaign raised more than $350,000. This year the goal is to raise $1 million. These proceeds will go to the IFHF’s goal of raising $100 million to build nine new National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) Satellite Centers that will be focused on diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
