Maxon donates liftgate to Marines group

Maxon Lift Corporation has donated a Tuk-A-Way 72-25 liftgate to the non-profit Marine Corps SOS Organization of St Paul MN.

Earlier in 2011, Frank Ranallo, founder of the Marine Corps SOS Organization, approached Maxon for spare part donations to refurbish a 12-year old 72-25 liftgate that was mounted to a truck received as a donation. With the labor part of the job already donated by Truck Utilities Manufacturing of St Paul, rather than only provide the spare parts requested, Maxon offered to replace the older liftgate with a new 72-25 model as a donation to this cause.

Ranallo indicated that the liftgate contribution will help serve many purposes, including relocation of Marines and their families. December 2011 was a busy month for this organization since it also assisted with the collection of toys for the “Toys For Tots” program.

To make a contribution to Marine Corps SOS, write to 1938 Nortonia Ave, St Paul, MN 55119 or e-mail Frank Ranallo at [email protected].
