Donates $10,000 to Wounded Warriors In Action Foundation

Miller Brewing presented a check for $10,000 to Waupaca Foundry employee Dave Hintz for his work with Hides For Heroes. Hintz and Weyauwega Fremont High School students and FFA members Katelyn and Kyle Loehrke collected deer hides during the 2016 hunting season. All money raised from the sale of the hides and donations was given to Wounded Warriors In Action. Donation sites were located throughout Central Wisconsin and at Waupaca Foundry iron casting manufacturing plants.
