Danner Producing Masks in its Portland Plant

Danner is doing its best to keep moving forward during the COVID-19 crisis, transitioning its factory to produce face masks in addition to their boots. Danner is producing roughly 1,000 masks per day with a focus on providing them to medical personnel and first responders. They’ve also donated 300 masks to Portland Public School teachers and staff near their Oregon plant.

Danner has just received their first shipment of materials needed to create another 15,000 masks and are ramping up to produce face shields in their factory using laces, boot foam and other materials on hand.

“On behalf of the team here,” said Chris Perrotti, senior manager of quality and commercialization, “we are very happy to be able to contribute in some way to the cause.”

Union Volunteers, USA and Remington Arms Join Forces to Give High School Trap Team a New Home

Illinois youths will soon enjoy expanded recreational shooting opportunities thanks in part to the labors of union volunteers and a $10,000 grant from the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance and conservation partner Remington Arms.

The new complex will feature an eight-station trap and skeet range, complete with ADA-approved wheelchair accessible walkways. A second trap-only range certified by the Amateur Trapshooting Association is also under construction and will provide the Cumberland High School Trap Team a base of operations.

The $10,000 grant from the USA and Remington, donated through the USA’s United Outdoors Conservation Fund, was used to purchase materials and equipment for the trap field.
