‘Two trailers for Tennessee victims’

Print Article

Thank you from everyone here at Pratt Industries to all of you that contributed to our collection efforts for the people in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area that were devastated by recent wildfires.

We reached out to you to help us fill a 53’ trailer with food, clothing and simple daily necessities that we would send to them. We didn’t know how much we should expect with just over one week to get out the word but on a cold Saturday morning, we were pleasantly surprised by the overwhelming support of our neighbors.

We didn’t just meet our goal of filling up the trailer, we filled up two trailers! As I heard one contributor say, “Beloit is a little city with a big heart.” I am pleased to report that both trailers have been delivered and your donations are already reaching those in need. Thank you again.
