Take a look at Rothco's #DealerSpotlight on M-3 Surplus, in Michigan! This incredible 6600 sq. ft, military surplus store was found 6 1/2 years ago by Patrick and Kathy McCormick. The store is a mix of products, between military pride items, duty gear, survival, and surplus. They have one of the nation’s largest veteran populations in their community, so a lot of their customers are members of the military and veterans. However, M3 still has a diverse customer base ranging from police and security to survivalist and military youth programs. You can read their whole story here and view more pictures of their massive store here: https://www.rothco.com/dealer-spotlight/m3-surplus. #ShopLocal See Post

Rothco Charity Programs
Throughout our 65 years in business, Rothco has dedicated itself to giving back to the community. From establishing our very own Scholarship Fund to working with local and international charities, Rothco is proud to support the following charities:
- Suffolk County United Veterans: The Suffolk County United Veterans Project, Inc. (SCUV) was founded in 1989 to assist homeless veterans in regaining their dignity and independence. Residents are former members of the military who struggle with the problems of substance abuse and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and who have not been able to succeed in any alternate form of treatment.
- Hope House: Provides compassionate, comprehensive and competent care for the poor, the marginal and the wounded among us.
- A Mother’s Kiss: Mothers Kiss was formed in 1994 for the purpose of providing emotional and financial support to the families of childhood cancer patients in the Long Island and Metro-New York area.
- Our Daily Bread: A local soup kitchen located at St. James Church in E. Setauket, NY
- Pronto: Located in Bay Shore, NY provides services, food, housing and counseling to the Hispanic community.
- Lighthouse Mission: An organization committed to feeding families in need, developing our youth, sharing God’s love and empowering people to live lives of purpose.
