U.S. service members who’ve suffered “close shaves” in war have a corporate hero at home.
Bic North America, headquartered in Shelton, welcomed National Guardsman, Jason Braase, to inspire employees about the Wounded Warrior Project.
Braase almost lost his right leg in 2005 from a roadside bomb explosion in Iraq.
So far this year, Bic said it’s donated about $100,000 for wounded warriors by sponsoring Tough Mudder challenges.
“We’re actually still just trying to find those big supporters that are going to be great partners as we grow, BiC is one of them, they’ve been there for the last three years and I fully see them being there in the long haul,” Braase said.
To support the troops, as well as the Wounded Warrior Project, several BiC employees got their heads shaved…with BiC razors of course.
