The promotion gives $50 donation to Camp Hometown Heroes with purchase of lift arm kit.

| July 7, 2014

MILWAUKEE – Western Products today introduced a limited edition patriotic lift arm kit. The lift arm kit features a deep blue color, enhanced by white stars and red stripes. The kit is compatible with all UltraMount and UltraMount 2 series snowplows and is available for a limited time only.
 
For each kit purchased at a Western snowplow dealer between July 4 and Sept. 1, 2014, Western Products will donate $50 to Camp Hometown Heroes.


Camp Hometown Heroes is a weeklong overnight summer camp for children of U.S. service members who died as a result of combat, accident, illness or suicide. In addition to traditional summer camp activities, like swimming, arts and crafts, archery, canoeing and fishing, the children are also given access to pediatric grief specialists, music therapy programs and optional discussion groups.


“The children of those who lost their lives protecting our country deserve more access to organizations like Camp Hometown Heroes,” said Patrick Dietz, Douglas Dynamics director of marketing. “The snow removal professionals who purchase these lift arm kits will not only be able to show off their patriotism on their trucks, but they’ll also be helping a child of a fallen soldier get through one of the hardest times in his or her life.”
