Honeywell and Howard Leight step up to help Americans helping each other
WESTWOOD, Mass. (May 8, 2020) – Something has proven to be even more infectious than this insidious novel coronavirus over the past few weeks: the American spirit. Indeed, Americans are stepping up to protect the most vulnerable populations across the country by heeding stay-at-home orders and embracing social-distancing guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19. And at the corporate level, companies like Honeywell – a global technology leader and parent company to the popular Howard Leight Shooting Sports brand – are responding nimbly with a variety of creative initiatives to protect against the threat while helping to prop up our stressed economy.
