Jerr-Dan capped off their in-booth social event at the recent towing and recovery trade show in Baltimore by donating $20,000 to the International Towing and Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum’s Survivor Fund, the Oshkosh Corporation company reported. The Survivor Fund was established in 2005 to provide immediate financial support to families of towing operators who lose their lives in the line of service.
“As a company, we are honored to have the opportunity to again support the Survivors Fund with our donation tonight,” said Bob Nelson, vice president and general manager of Jerr-Dan. “We also want to urge all who can to participate in the Museum’s continuing supporter program. Anything our industry can do to lessen the financial impact a family endures following the loss of a loved one is appreciated.”
Jerr-Dan is committed to supporting the families of those impacted and continues to explore potential features that may help mitigate future incidents, the company added.
The donation was presented by Nelson and the entire Jerr-Dan team attending the show to the Survivor Fund Board of Directors.
