“Polaris has a longstanding history and a passion for supporting the military and giving back to organizations that have a strong community impact,” said Paul Nick, vice president Off Road Part, Garments & Accessories Products and Partnerships, Polaris.” As we looked to launch the Patriot LE Northstar coolers we saw an opportunity to support two foundations that serve our nations by honoring our veterans, first responders and their families. We’re thrilled to be able to work with both The Gary Sinise Foundationsm and Wounded Warriors Canada.”

“As we come together to celebrate Independence Day in the U.S. and salute all our servicemembers and veterans who defend and protect our freedoms at home and abroad, we are incredibly grateful for Polaris’ partnership to further advance the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission of supporting our veterans, first responders, heroes and defenders, along with their families who sacrifice so much in service to our country,” said Jim Ravella, Senior Vice President of Programs at the Gary Sinise Foundation. “As our founder Gary Sinise always says, ‘we can always do a little more,’ to honor and salute these remarkable heroes and Polaris’ mission aligns perfectly with our purpose.”
