Duluth Fire Department Gets Big Blanket Donation
Fire Department Gets Big Donation
Earlier today, September 30, 2015, the Duluth Fire Department received a donation of 5,000 blankets, valued at $103,983, from the Firefighters Support Services out of Wyandotte Michigan.
The purpose of Firefighters Support Services Inc. is to provide charitable support services to firefighters and paramedics through donations of safety equipment, other equipment, supplies and services and to engage in any lawful activities in furtherance of that purpose.
The organization also supports children and other burn and fire victims with monetary donations, goods and services.
Firefighters are often on the front lines with folks in dire need, faced with a variety of circumstances.
It is their intent to distribute each of these new, and warm blankets to an individual in need, whether it be from losing their possessions in a fire, or an individual faced with living on the street.
They fully intend to put each one of these donated blankets to good use in a community across Minnesota.
The fire department says they are thankful for Firefighters Support Services Inc., Lake Superior College and McGough Construction for the roles they played in making the donation possible.
