Smith Point Sea Rescues'
Annual Solicitation Drive
Smith Point Sea Rescue has been saving boaters for more than 40 year.’
We now hope you will answer our call for help with a tax-deductible donation.
We only write to ask for your help once a year.
We are a non-profit, all-volunteer organization. We receive no funding from the government.
Unlike commercial rescue services, we require no membership fee or payment for our services when we respond to a boating emergency.
Our members are your neighbors. We volunteer to be on duty 24/7, willing to head out into stormy waters – day or night – to save you, your family, your friends.
Although our members do most of the boat maintenance themselves, fueling and fixing three busy rescue boats is never ending and expensive. Our boats must be in top condition to operate at all hours and in any weather.
These ongoing expenses are covered with funds donated by those who appreciate the availability of a local rescue service that stands ready to help any boater in trouble.
Smith Point Sea Rescue is unique and has become a Northern Neck and Chesapeake Bay tradition. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only non-profit, all-volunteer, marine rescue service on the bay.
We now hope that we can count on you to send a donation to help us continue this unique and valuable service to boaters in our waters.
With many thanks, and in your service,
Andy Kauders (President), and the 45 members of SPSR
P.S. We will reply with confirmation of your tax-deductible contribution for your records.
