Donations Needed for Coast Guard Families During Gov Shutdown
With the government shut down happening we realized our Coast Guard is being affected in a big way. Unlike other military branches the Coast Guard personnel are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security and are working without pay during the government Shutdown.
The training. base located in Cape May has approximately 472 affected members. In our general area we also have Air Station Atlantic City, Sector Delaware Bay, Station Barnegat, Station Manasquan and Station Philadelphia. This equates to over 1,500 affected members and their families. They help us every day of the year and right now they need our help.
The families of the Coast Guard are asking for our help in donating non perishable food, baby formula, baby food diapers, and dog food.
The Seaville Volunteer Fire Rescue Company is partnering with the Wildwood American Legion for donation drop off points.
The location addresses are as follows; Seaville Fire Company (36 Route 50, Seaville) and the American Legion Post 184 (4200 Atlantic Avenue, Wildwood).
If you can help that would be wonderful. Check out some of the articles below of the rescues our Coast Guard made these past few weeks.
