Clutch, A Social Cause Sports Apparel And Activewear Brand, Makes Global Launch Debut

A brand new concept in consumer and sports apparel aimed to support underprivileged young athletes and eleven global and national charities, debuts July 31, 2018

Press Release – DALLAS (Tuesday, July 31st) – Clutch is proud to announce today the global launch of a new concept in consumer and team sports apparel and activewear. With a full line of high-quality team and individual clothing items, not only is Clutch creating jobs and giving back approximately 50 percent of its profits to charities, but it is also creating a movement of change. Clutch has already received a large preorder of apparel, which will be provided to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and in the United States.

“Today’s consumers want to know their purchase, of any product, is doing more than supporting the bottom line of a corporation,” says Mickey Pruitt, Managing Partner of Clutch. “By wearing the Clutch brand, the consumer is supporting Clutch’s position of endorsing charities.”

“We are supporting underprivileged boys and girls who cannot afford sports equipment or who don’t have access to sports programs,” says Blaine J. Blanchard, Founder of Clutch. “In addition to supporting young athletes, Clutch is also supporting U.S. Military troops and global education, as well as LGBTQ inclusion and awareness in high school, collegiate and professional sports, as well as many other charitable efforts.”

The Clutch starting lineup of charities includes:

  1. Team Fox benefiting the Michael J. Fox Foundation, the largest funder of Parkinson’s Disease research
  2. National Multiple Sclerosis Society, supporting families, research, and advocacy to end MS
  3. Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization feeding 46 million people annually
  4. Feherty’s Troops Foundation, providing meaningful assistance to U.S. Military who have been wounded while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan
  5. The First Tee, providing junior golf programs to economically disadvantaged communities, a partnership among the LPGA, the Masters Tournament, the PGA of America, the PGA TOUR, and the USGA, Honorary Chair George W. Bush
  6. Pencils of Promise, building schools and increasing educational opportunities in the developing world, having already built 471 schools to date
  7. Athlete Ally, promoting LGBTQ inclusion and awareness in all levels of athletics
  8. Kids in Need Foundation, providing school supplies and grants to children and teachers in need
  9. Victory Day, high school and college students living with cognitive or physical impairments to participate in athletics
