NAPA Auto Supply & Equipment has announced it has teamed with NAPA AUTO PARTS’ to bring customers the “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. Throughout July, NAPA Auto Supply & Equipment customers will receive up to a $25 mail-in rebate for every NAPA battery, alternator, and starter they purchase, which they can donate all or a portion of to the IFHF. Additionally, NAPA will donate $1 to the IFHF for each redeemed rebate. Customers can also contribute via a nationwide text-to-donate program during the month by texting 'NAPA' to 27722 to make a $10 donation.
To raise awareness of the fundraising effort, NAPA Auto Supply & Equipment employees will join with participating locations of the over 13,000 nationwide NAPA Auto Care Repair Centers in swapping out their blue and yellow uniforms for grey IFHF shirts during July. 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. Signage will also be placed throughout the NAPA stores.
"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 Auto Supply & Equipment is proud to be part of a program that supports the families that have sacrificed for our freedom. Our team is working hard to make this program a success for our Fallen Heroes.

ABOUT INTREPID FALLEN HEROES FUND (IFHF)
The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund is a national leader in supporting the men and women of the United States Armed Forces and their families. Since 2000, the Fund has provided over $150 million in support for the families of military personnel lost in service to our nation, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans.
The Fund most recently opened the National Intrepid Center of Excellence to support the research, diagnosis, and treatment of military personnel and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Fund is now launching a new project to build satellite TBI centers at several major military deployment bases around the country, providing more direct care to our wounded heroes in uniform.
