The Founders Cigar Company has been making big waves in the cigar industry, and in outdoor/firearm circles as well because both communities go hand-in-hand. They recently debuted their Executive Box of premium cigars and related accoutrements, and now they shared that they are giving back to our veterans in a big way by partnering with Operation: Cigars for Warriors.

Founders is proud to announce that they have entered into a partnership with Operation: Cigars For Warriors. Together they have created an online “purchase and donation” promotion that will allow customers to “buy a cigar for the troops.” At a modest price of only $8.50, a customer can purchase a cigar which is then matched by Founders with an additional stick and sent every month to Operation: Cigars for Warrior’s Operations Center for inclusion in care packages. One of the co-founders of Founders Cigar Company as well as the CEO of Operation: Cigars for Warriors shared their thoughts on this new joint, philanthropic venture below:
“It’s a great pleasure to expand our partnerships with retailers of every variety in support of our mission. We’re proud to collaborate with Founders to achieve significant benefits for their business, our inventory, and the warfighter who receives care packages.” – Storm Boen, Chairman and CEO of Operation: Cigars for Warriors
“As a U.S. Air Force veteran and currently serving in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, we are honored to partner with Operation: Cigars for Warriors. Our mission is to provide a connection through the means of cigars and CFW is an outstanding partner in providing this opportunity to serve our men and women downrange with premium cigars.” – Brian Schmittdiel, Co-Founder of Founders Cigar Company
There is something calming, soothing, and relaxing about a quality cigar. It can be a nightcap to a day well done or simply commiserating with friends. The Operation: Cigars for Warriors project with Founders Cigar Company sounds like a terrific project across the board. As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below!
