Keeping Watch 24/7
For over 50 years, the U.S Coast Guard Stations at Fort Macon & Emerald Isle have been patrolling our waters and saving lives along the North Carolina Coast. Coast Guard Base Fort Macon itself is comprised of over 200 active duty personnel, 85 reservists, and over 1,200 auxiliary members.
In need of our help
We are approaching the month-long mark of the Government Shutdown. Based in the lapse of Federal Funding, enlisted members in the U.S Coast Guard are still required to work without pay. This has a significant impact in the everyday lives of thousands of people, so we want to do what we can to help enrich the lives of the men and women who serve to keep us protected along the waterways we all enjoy. These crews work around the clock to keep watch of our oceans and keep us safe. With a lapse in funding, not only are the home-lives of these Guardsmen effected- but the duty stations are in need of supplies as well.
Items Needed Include:
- Ingredients for spaghetti, other pasta dishes
- Chicken breast
- Hamburger and buns
- Hot dogs and buns
- Prepared meals like: lasagna, pizzas
- Canned soups
- Pretzels, chips, crackers
- Granola bars, cereal, muffins
- Eggs, milk, sausage/bacon
- Gatorade, juice, milk, coffee
Please bring your donations to either of our Bluewater Real Estate Offices and we will coordinate with the Coast Guard stations for delivery. We thank you for your help, and thank the hardworking Coast Guard community for their commitment to serving our country.
