FeraDyne donates hams to the Duluth Fire Department for Christmas dinner

By Kate Van Daele
Thanks to a donation from FeraDyne Outdoors, Duluth Fire Department crews will have ham dinners on Christmas.

FeraDyne, the nation’s largest hunting accessories manufacturer, wanted to give back to the community after a very busy year. Company representatives reached out to the Duluth Fire Department, asking if they could provide a total of 24 hams as a thank you for the services that crews provide to residents and visitors.

“We have locations in a part of Kentucky that were just hit by tornadoes,” said Jacinta Roth, Vice President of Human Resources and Safety Management. “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.”

“To have a local business recognize that members of our staff will not be able to spend Christmas dinner with their families means a lot,” Assistant Chief Dennis Edwards said. “Many of us within the department are users of FeraDyne products, so to know that they support us and our mission is very appreciated.”

This afternoon, hams were delivered to the Duluth Fire Department headquarters station and will be distributed to the other seven stations later today.
