Mack Defense, in cooperation with Mack Trucks, announced a multiyear partnership with Fisher House Foundation in which proceeds from the Mack Anthem Digi Camo diecast model sales will be donated to the nonprofit serving military and veterans families.
Mack will donate $20,000 this year for sales in 2019 and 2020, and will contribute up to $10,000 more next year as sales continue.
Fisher House Foundation builds comfort houses near military and Veterans Administration hospitals where military and veterans families can stay free of charge while a loved one is in the hospital.
“Mack Defense is committed to supporting those in the military and our veterans in any way we can to acknowledge their unwavering commitment to help protect and serve our country and its citizens,” said David Hartzell, president, Mack Defense. “We are proud to be able to donate to Fisher House Foundation proceeds from sales of our military-inspired Mack Anthem diecast model.”
The diecast model features a camo-wrapped Anthem model cab and the phrase “Salute to Service” on the trailer, along with the Mack Bulldog logo and the American Flag both prominently displayed. The diecast is sold through the Mack Shop, item number M1216.
Since its inception in 1990, Fisher House Foundation has served more than 400,000 families, saved families an estimated $500 million in lodging costs and offered 10 million days of temporary housing. There are 90 Fisher Houses located on 25 military installations and 40 VA medical centers.
“Fisher House Foundation thanks Mack Trucks for their generous contribution,” said Chairman and CEO of Fisher House Foundation Ken Fisher. “Mack Trucks understands the importance of keeping military families together at one of the most critical times – when loved ones are receiving care in VA and military hospitals.”
Featuring diecast metal construction with an opening hood and doors and authentic engine detail, the Mack Anthem Digi Camo diecast is built to a 1:50 scale, with a detailed cab interior, pivoting fifth-wheel plate, and a detachable trailer.
