Lifetime Store Memorial Day Event Donates More than 1700 to UMFF
June 8, 2011
Lifetime Store, the Official Lifetime Products Outlet Store, donated five percent of proceeds from the second annual "Salute Our Troops" Memorial Day event to the Utah Military Families Foundation (UMFF). This year's event was such a success it surpassed last year's donation with the final amount being donated to the UMFF totaling $1,712.
Founded in 2007, UMFF is a privately-funded non-profit organization headquartered at Hill Air Force Base that supports more than 80,000 military families throughout Utah. UMFF will use the donation to fund projects and events that support military members from all service branches and their families, especially those deployed.
This military-themed "Salute Our Troops" event provided a fun family atmosphere for all ages. Those who attended enjoyed free ice cream, prizes, contests, discounts, and a live broadcast by 97.1 ZHT. One individual won a Lifetime portable basketball hoop in the free-throw contest and another won a Lifetime wheelbarrow by guessing how much weight it was holding.
“We have been manufacturing in Utah for 25 years and we are honored to give back to our local community that has supported us over the years,” said Richard Hendrickson President of Lifetime Products. “We are also proud to be neighbors with Hill Air Force Base. This event was just a small way for us to thank and support our local military members on Memorial Day. These people sacrifice so much for our country. Thanks to everyone in our community who came out to help make it a success."
