Responding to Those in Need

Responding to Those in Need

More than 155,000 articles of clothing, 350,000 masks, and $540,000 donated to disaster relief.

In times of need, whether caused by a pandemic or a natural disaster, we believe it is our responsibility as a family-owned business to help those who have been knocked down get back on their feet.

Not only is it our duty, but we have a passion for giving back. Every year since 1973, AFTCO and the Shedd family have contributed at least 10% of company profits to help protect our aquatic resources and access to them. Regardless of the need — whether an individual, family, town, or state — we work with agencies, churches, and local AFTCO retailers to offer support and relief.
