Federal Ammunition Raises $218,000 For Local Organizations

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, Federal Ammunition is donating more than $218,000 to local organizations in support of their critical missions. Funds for these donations resulted from silent and live auctions that occurred during a company event on June 18, celebrating the anniversary milestone with current and retired employees and their families, industry friends and local dignitaries.

“Industry partners stepped up and generously donated to the auctions in support of a key element in Federal’s mission statement and its legacy of giving back and supporting the local communities where our employees live and work,” said Jason Vanderbrink, Federal Ammunition president.

The three Minnesota-based organizations benefiting from the auctions and other generous donations are: the Anoka Police Department, Feed My Starving Children and the Anoka County Brotherhood Council. Each organization will receive nearly $73,000 to support their organizations and missions.

The Anoka Police Department’s mission is to maintain the peace and the protection of the public through diligent enforcement of all laws and to effectively respond to calls for service.

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) believes hope starts with food. As a Christian nonprofit, FMSC is dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit. FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development.

The Anoka County Brotherhood Council (ACBC) provides emergency food and clothing assistance to local individuals and families in need. In addition to extending excellent care to people, ACBC is focused on ensuring that they make the most of the donations that they receive and that they waste as little as possible. With this philosophy of care and responsibility in mind, ACBC met with the Minnesota Waste Wise Foundation in early 2016 to see if they could improve upon their current waste and recycling practices.

Attending the celebration and accepting the donations were Anoka’s Chief of Police Eric Peterson; Ann Hill, development officer at Feed My Starving Children; and Stephanie Lehman, executive director at the Anoka County Brotherhood Council.
