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.
