Daines Honors Montanan of the Week: Victory Sewers of Sanders County

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines recognized the Victory Sewers of Sanders County for their tremendous impact on the state of Montana.

Through his “Montanan of the Week” initiative, Daines each week will highlight a Montanan by submitting a statement of recognition in the official Congressional Record, the document that reflects the official proceedings of Congress.

Daines welcomes anyone to nominate fellow Montanans for Daines’ “Montanan of the Week” program by calling Daines’ office at 202-224-2651 or by filling out the contact form on Daines’ website: HERE.

The following is a statement submitted to the Congressional Record

Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing the Victory Sewers of Sanders County for volunteering their time to support their community during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In the face of these challenging times, a group of nearly 45 Montanans in Sanders County have stepped up to sew gowns for the staff of Fork Valley Hospital. Volunteers have also used leftover materials to produce protective masks for our law enforcement and first responders.

The group has made over 90 gowns and over 500 masks, which have been distributed to clinics in Thompson Falls, Hot Springs and to various emergency service personnel across Sanders county. The Victory Sewers are comprised of Montanans from Plains, Paradise, Thompson Falls, Trout Creek and Noxon.

It is my honor to recognize the Victory Sewers of Sanders County for their efforts to support our health care heroes and those on the front lines of this pandemic. The compassion and commitment of these extraordinary Montanans are an inspiration to us all.
