The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
BECOME AN ACTIVE VOLUNTEER PROMOTING BOATING SAFETY ON ARIZONA's WATERWAYS
Be a part of Team Coast Guard as a volunteer member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We supply direct support of most Coast Guard activities (except Law Enforcement and war). Members may become involved in boating activities such as safety patrols on Arizona’s lakes, public education classes, vessel safety checks and marine/environmental safety and more. Extensive training is provided. Boat owners who provide their boats as Operational Facilities receive fuel reimbursement and a maintenance allowance. If you don’t own a boat, other areas of interest include public affairs, computer services, publications, member training and radio communications. Fellowship is another key cornerstone to the Coast Guard Auxiliary with many planned events. You must be at least 17 years old to join, a United States citizen, pass a federal background check and there are no upper age limits.
If you are interested, we meeting on the fourth Monday of each month at the Bass Pro Shop meeting room (2 nd floor), 1133 N Dobson Rd, Mesa, AZ 85201.
