See what is happening in the community.
The Duluth Elks No. 133 donated $200 worth of gloves, hats, and jackets to the Salvation Army along with $100.
FeraDyne Outdoors, the nation's largest hunting accessories manufacturer, donated ham dinners for the Duluth Fire Department to have on Christmas. The company donated a total of 24 hams. “We have locations in a part of Kentucky that were just hit by tornadoes,” Jacinta Roth, vice president of human resources and safety management, said. “We are always grateful for first responders, but this experience in Kentucky has only increased our knowledge of what responders do for our communities. We wanted to extend our thanks for their time and service here in the Twin Ports."
For 20 years, the Duluth Fire Department has collected money from its members to support the Salvation Army's Toyland Express. This year, the department collected over $6,200 in donations to complete local children's wish lists. Duluth Fire Marshal Sandy McComb said: "Our active and retired members donate every year, and with that support, we raise more money for the cause than we did the year before. This is a terrific way for us to give back to the community and help make the upcoming holiday season a little more special." Target also partnered with the department and purchased items for the Toyland Express.
