TSAC has decided to add support for the United States Coast Guard to our mission. crowfeather, a TSAC committee member, has a daughter Sara in the Coast Guard which gives us a direct and personal link to the Coast Guard.

Many Coast Guard members were among the people devastated by Hurricane Katrina and are in desperate need of assistance. Moreover, Coast Guard members are currently instrumental in working in that devastated area and could use our support.

To learn more about the Coast Guard, click here for their home page.

TSAC's first effort in supporting the Coast Guard is collecting dark blue crew neck T-shirts and heavy dark blue socks for wearing with boots to send to the Coast Guard relief workers down in the gulf area. As you can imagine, laundry facilities are scarce in the Gulf states as are stores to replace clothes worn out in the relief efforts.

If you would like to donate either or both of these items for our first shipment, you can get them to TSAC via our drop off locations here or stop by the TSAC Conifer Safeway Troop Collection on September 24, 10:00 to 3:00. We will also be collecting money to buy more tee shirts and socks and to pay the postage for our Coast Guard shipments.

We are also looking in to other ways to support the Coast Guard such as direct support to the displaced Coast Guard members and their families and perhaps adopting one or more Coast Guard ships deployed to war areas such as Iraq.

We will keep you posted on our activities supporting the United States Coast Guard here.

TSAC IS MAKING IT'S FIRST SHIPMENT TO THE COASTGUARD!

Tomorrow We will be shipping 50 T Shirts and 45 pairs of work socks to the Coast Guard serving in New Orleans. All this is a result of the Pinecam Community's generous cash donations at Safeway last weekend.

We have been kicking around the idea of adopting a Coast Guard Unit in the Persian Gulf and then came Katrina, now we are just doing what we can, at home. The Coast guard stationed in the Gulf have suffered serious losses, 1600 families are projected to be homeless. If you have any ideas how we may be able to make a focused effort at helping these people please let us know

Thanks Bubbs .

Thank you for the support in your thoughts and the donations that you provided. I can assure you it is well received. I am here on temporary duty from District 17 in Juneau, Alaska. I have passed the donations and letter you sent to the Chiefs here in Alexandria. They are very appreciative as they and their crews restart their personal lives and jobs in New Orleans. Many have lost everything and continue doing their duty everyday. They will definitely appreciate the donations. Thank you again to all that have contributed and sent their thoughts of support.
