FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DAYTON, Ohio (April 26, 2016) – On April 7, LION Apparel Inc. awarded a $1,250 donation to Military Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) to help provide counseling services to veterans. Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, LION designs and manufactures protective gear for firefighters and law enforcement agencies, provides training equipment and facilities for first responders, and manages clothing logistics for the U.S. military.
