The 2021/22 season will be the same as the current one, with the front of the three shirts dedicated to different causes.
Orient have announced the partner for the front of their home shirt will be Tommy Club, which is run by Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI).
The charity supports vulnerable armed forces veterans, providing welfare support and employment opportunities for those in need.
RBLI provides a home to more than 300 veterans and their families through a diverse village providing adapted apartments, nursing care, emergency accommodation for homeless veterans as well as employment opportunities.
As well as the additional coverage throughout the season, 10% of proceeds of each shirt sale will be passed to the charity.
The partnership will also enable the benefactor to receive hospitality, where guests of Tommy Club can head to the Breyer Group Stadium to watch The O’s in action.
Harry Kane said: “I am thrilled to be donating the Leyton Orient FC home shirt to Tommy Club. I am a proud ambassador of the charity and know how every new champion can make a difference.
“Together we can improve the lives of our nation’s heroes.”
Head of Commercial at Leyton Orient, Josh Stephens said: “A huge thanks to Harry and his team at CK66 for their continual support not just to the Club, but to the three charities too.
“The 2020/21 season brought to life one of the biggest partnership stories of the year and we are tremendously thankful to Harry for making it possible.
“What started as an amazing gesture has turned into a truly magic partnership.
“The partnership has created so much good, but for me the smiles from our fans, every member of staff, players, the footballing community and most importantly the three charities, their staff and beneficiaries will live long in my memory.
“We look forward to working closely with Tommy Club during the course of the 2021/22 season.”
Chief Executive at Royal British Legion Industries, Steve Sherry CMG OBE said: “Harry Kane and Leyton Orient have developed a truly groundbreaking partnership which provides a whole new voice for worthy causes such as ours – and we are incredibly proud to be part of this for the upcoming season.
Many of our country’s most vulnerable veterans need our support now more than ever, and Harry’s and Leyton Orient’s support will have a genuinely life-changing effect on the brave men and women supported by Tommy Club. We simply cannot thank them enough.”
