JACKSON CENTER — Bob Wheeler, president and CEO of Airstream, has been named to the volunteer Board of Directors of the National Forest Foundation.
“I’m honored to lend my support to the National Forest Foundation, which plays such an important role in supporting our National Forests,” Wheeler said. “Airstreamers are frequent visitors to these pristine outdoor spaces, and our community has a long tradition of giving back to the places we love.”
Airstream’s parent company, Thor Industries, recently made a $50,000 donation to the NFF.
The NFF was chartered by Congress as the official non-profit partner of the United States Forest Service. Its mission is to help the Forest Service care for the nation’s forests for the benefit of future generations.
“We are proud to welcome Mr. Wheeler to the NFF’s Board,” said Mary Mitsos, President, and CEO of the NFF. “Thor Industries’ generous donation to the NFF will enable us to make an even bigger impact on the landscapes that its customers enjoy. We are excited to continue to work with Thor Industries and Airstream to highlight the values and benefits these landscapes provide to us all.”
