We at the ModernJeeper family love hearing stories of giving this time of year. And when one of our partners steps up big time to help those in need, we are thrilled to share the news with you. From Hurricanes Dorian to Harvey, to floods and to wildfires, this outfit is helping people get their lives back and Warn pitched in. Warn donated 15 winches to ‘No Town Left Behind’ and this is the story.
Clackamas, OR (12/18/19) – Warn Industries has donated 15 truck winches to the non-profit disaster-relief organization, No Town Left Behind. The group provides all-inclusive disaster support services, volunteers, and supply distribution to assist towns impacted by disasters. Most recently, No Town Left Behind has been assisting in The Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian devastated the country.
No Town Left Behind’s Founder and President, Kimberly Goreham, says, “This special donation will literally help us move trees and debris out of our way and will allow our teams to do vehicle recoveries, self-recoveries, and so much more. There are even plans to install a winch on The Sea Reaper, an ocean-going vessel to help us move cargo by boat when needed.”
Ron Hockett, No Town Left Behind’s National Off-Road Response Director, and his wife, Freda, picked up the winch donation.
Kimberly says the organization’s mission is to move emergency relief supplies to communities in need after natural disasters. With the help of their community sponsors, they have moved over 45 million pounds of supplies in the last two years and aided in 13 major storms, fires, and floods. Group members travel through the most challenging of terrains and the vehicles and equipment are the team’s lifelines. The winches will be used on their Emergency Response Team’s vehicles.
Founded in 2004, No Town Left Behind helps communities affected by natural disasters on many levels. From distributing emergency supplies to search and rescue operations, the organization believes that “many hands lighten the load for all.” They are often the first wave of help on the scene of a disaster. No Town Left Behind is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
