Felling Trailers, Inc. Names the 2024 Trailer for a Cause Beneficiary

Trailer for A CauseFelling Trailers, Inc. names Backing the Blue Line as the beneficiary of the twelfth annual 2024 Trailer for a Cause auction. Felling Trailers has hosted an online auction of an FT-3 Utility trailer for over a decade, donating 100% of the winning bid to the selected nonprofit organization. Felling Trailers’ goal is to bring awareness to various nonprofits that are making a difference and choosing a new beneficiary each year. Previous Trailer for a Cause auctions have raised over $44,000 for nonprofit organizations such as ACT on ALZ-Alzheimer’s, Lymphoma Research Foundation, Minnesota Fire Fighters Foundation, Eagle’s Healing Nest, and Pockets of Hope to name a few.

The 2024 Trailer for a Cause auction beneficiary, Backing the Blue Line,  was selected by the Felling Trailers’ employees. “For several years, we put the decision of selecting the benefitting organization in the hands of our team members in the form of a vote. A list of organizations and corresponding information is given to team members to select from,” said Brenda Jennissen, President/CEO of Felling Trailers.

“We respect and appreciate our local and state law enforcement officers and recognize what they lay on the line each day they put on their uniform and leave home for their shift to protect our communities. We’re thankful to live and work in communities that are protected by these professional men and women who choose to wear the badge. ‘Blessed are the Peacemakers; for they will be called Children of God.’ – Matthew 5:9.”

— Brenda Jennissen, President/CEO of Felling Trailers
