Donaldson Company, a Bloomington manufacturer of innovative filtration products and solutions, has been named a Yellow Ribbon Company by the Minnesota Department of Military Affairs’ Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a community network that creates awareness to connect military families and veterans with community support and resources. Yellow Ribbon-designated organizations partner with the State of Minnesota Director of Military Outreach to develop a sustainable, formal action plan demonstrating a long-term commitment to service members, veterans and their families. The action plan includes specific recruiting and human resources policies, training and development efforts, community and employee outreach and support initiatives.

Recently, Bloomington’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon group was officially recognized by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs as the Bloomington Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network. Bloomington Mayor Tim Busse, above left, officially congratulated the group on this accomplishment in a City Council proclamation in
November 2021.
