Remembering Orlando – Penn Issues Patch

Posted June 24, 2016 at 1:07 pm

Penn Emblem Co., Philadelphia, recently designed a limited-edition patch to show support for victims of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, which took place on June 12 at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL.

“With our country still reeling from the worst mass shooting in history, as a nation, we have a duty to help the victims and their families during this unimaginable tragedy,” Penn Emblem said in a news release. “Penn Emblem designed commemorative patches to show that through horrendous displays of hate, our country is united with love.”

Penn Emblem President Randi Blumenthal-Joseph added that the patch was born out of desire to show solidarity with the victims of the attack. "Mario, one of our partners in Mexico, creatively expressed the pain he felt from the tragedy through the creation and design of these patches," she said. "In the wake of this terrible tragedy, it's important that we do something to support each other and the community."

All proceeds from the sale of these patches will be donated to support the victims, their families and the community. Click here for more information.
