Miller Industries Towing Equipment Inc. has donated proceeds totaling over $10,000 to the Wall of the Fallen Survivor Fund.  The Survivor Fund helps to support the families of towers who are killed in the line of duty. 

"This cause is one that is close to our hearts here at Miller Industries, because we have known many towers who have lost their lives in the line of duty," said Miller Industries officials. 

This donation comes at the close of the 2017 WeTow campaign hosted by Miller Industries.

The WeTow campaign aimed to raise awareness of the towing community’s support for the many charities across the nation, as well as the good deeds towers provide within the communities they serve.  Through the sale of custom tow hook bracelets, Miller Industries chose to promote the awareness of six national organizations: Susan G. Koman, DAV- Disabled American Veterans, The Miracle League, Shriners Children’s Hospital, International Towing Recovery Museum & Hall of Fame, and the Survivor Fund.  The tow hook bracelets are available for purchase at all participating Miller Industries distributors, and the money raised from the sale of the bracelets made it possible for this donation.
