TORRANCE, CA – In advance of the 4th of July holiday, Pelican Products held a one-day promotion pledging to donate 100% of the sell price of their 30QT Americana Elite Coolers to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The promotion on www.pelican.com/shop resulted in a donation of $7,500 to the NFFF.
“We have aligned our charitable giving programs around ‘Supporting the Heroes Who Protect Us’,” stated Sharon Ward, Director of Corporate Communication at Pelican. “Due to their strong ties to Pelican’s brand heritage and the valuable service they offer the firefighting community, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is a perfect partner for our philanthropic efforts.”
