Shoals Ambulance joined with the Hueytown Fire Department, Hueytown Police Department and Hueytown Chamber of Commerce in a donation of hunting equipment to local fourth-grade student Davieon Menefee on Friday, January 25. The donation and organization of the trip was arranged through Kidz Outdoors, a national nonprofit headquartered in Hueytown that provides children with limited mobility or severe illness with outdoor experiences in hunting, fishing, trapping and more.
Daevion was nominated by his teacher Staci Ragland, and the presentation held in front of the full student body of Hueytown Elementary School was a surprise. The local sponsors joined with the Kidz Outdoors national board of directors and national television host Tommy Wilcox of “Tommy Wilcox Outdoors Come Getcha Some” to present him with the donations, as well as a special proclamation naming him “King of the National Kidz Outdoors” float in the 2019 Chistmas Parade.
National Kiz Outdoor’s national headquarters is located in Hueytown and has chapters in six states throughout the Southeast.
