Prescott, AZ. (August 1, 2023) – Canyon Distributing, a Coors Banquet distributor, is proud to announce their partnership with The Eric Marsh Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the lives of wildland firefighters and their families in Yavapai County. This collaboration aims to provide crucial assistance, resources, and support to the brave individuals who risk their lives to protect our communities and natural landscapes.
The Granite Mountain Hotshots, a 20-man wildfire fighting crew, left an indelible mark on the world. On June 30, 2013, 19 members of the crew tragically lost their lives while battling a fire near Yarnell. The Eric Marsh Foundation was established to honor their mission and legacy by providing monetary support to wildland firefighters and their families. Canyon Distributing, in conjunction with The Eric Marsh Foundation, have identified key areas where their partnership can make a significant difference. The first being educating the public about the importance of wildland firefighting and the cause that The Eric Marsh Foundation is fighting for. “We must continue to recognize the efforts of our wildland firefighters and the sacrifices they make to keep our community safe,” shares Amanda Marsh, widow of Eric Marsh and founder of the Eric Marsh Foundation. “We are proud to have Canyon Distributing as a partner to bring awareness to our cause.”
Another important aspect of this collaboration with The Eric Marsh Foundation will be about actively engaging local communities in Yavapai County. Participating bars and restaurants in the area will join the cause by offering patrons the opportunity to make direct donations to the foundation by purchasing Coors Banquet. Canyon Distributing will also contribute $1 from every purchase of a Coors Banquet case to the Eric Marsh Foundation from their local clients. Direct donations to The Eric Marsh Foundation can also be made online. The campaign will run during the fire season through September.
