Heroes in Action, Inc. would like to thank the following Foundations, Schools, Businesses and Individuals for their support by either making donations to our organization, by allowing us to share our program’s within their communities or by helping promote our message. The donations that we receive from other Foundations, Businesses, and individuals enable us to share our strategies against Bullying and Violence with schools and communities that don’t have the funding to bring our services to them. Below is a growing list of friends that have either helped with or utilized our services for building safer schools and communities both locally and nationwide.
Metro Shooting Supplies: Thank you for adding my “Protect Yourself with C.T.S.” seminars to your list of programs enabling citizens to protect themselves against both armed and unarmed criminal intruders. You have given me the opportunity to share my training expertise to a different demographic group of people that all have those “What If?” questions who are not just thinking about their own safety, but also the safety of their loved ones and those around them. Having me on your radio show “Target Talk” really helped get my message out in conjunction with your show and hopefully got your listening audience to really think about the legalities of self-defense. Look forward to a long friendship and partnership in the future. www.bsrgunshop.com
The Title Boxing Club’s: Thank you for allowing us to train people in our C.T.S. Mentoring Program at your Creve Coeur location and for giving us the opportunity to provide our “Protect Yourself with C.T.S.” seminars at all five of your locations in the greater St. Louis area. www.titleboxingclub.com
