PITTSFIELD, NH—Globe Manufacturing Company continued its partnership with the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund at FDIC International 2015. With its supplier partner, 3M, Globe invited attendees to try its new G-XTREME® 3.0 turnout gear on the Globe Virtual Firefighter Athletic Circuit and committed to make a donation to the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund in each firefighter’s name. This year Globe had firefighters spin a wheel to determine the donation – $10, $20, $50, or $100. In total, Globe and 3M donated $28,080 to the Fund from the Globe Virtual Firefighter Athletic Circuit at FDIC.
“We believe in the mission of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund and are delighted that we’ve helped them make a difference in the lives of firefighters, their families, and departments over the past year,” says Rob Freese, senior vice president of marketing at Globe Manufacturing Company. “Globe has always given back to the fire service and we are proud to partner with this worthy cause and hard working group of volunteers.”
Terry Farrell was a father, a husband, a brother, and a dedicated firefighter who lost his life on September 11, 2001, during the World Trade Center attack. Among the 343 heroes who died that day, he was in Tower Two when it collapsed. A decorated member of Rescue 4/FDNY and chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department, Terry was a devoted firefighter who embodied the spirit of courage and giving. The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in his memory to assist firefighters and families across the nation with financial, educational and medical support, and to provide equipment donations for fire departments in need.
“The Terry Fund appreciates the great partnership we have with Globe. Globe not only makes some of the best and most innovative fire gear on the market today but also strongly supports the fire service through its direct assistance to the Terry Fund,” said Brian Farrell, chairman of the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund and brother of Terry Farrell. “Firefighters across America also directly benefit from the awareness that Globe brings to the Fund.”
3M is excited to continue its partnership with Globe in supporting a great cause like the Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund,” said Jennifer L. Sickmann, Global Segment Marketing Manager for 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material. “The support and enthusiasm shown by firefighters at the FDIC event was impressive.”
