The Sea Tow Foundation has received funding — as part of a grant administered through the U.S. Coast Guard’s Sport Fish Restoration & Boating Trust Fund — to add at least 50 new Life Jacket Loaner Stations throughout the country and restock hundreds of existing stations for the 2021 boating season.

Any organization, company, or family that is interested in receiving life jackets or adding a Life Jacket Loaner Station to their area, can fill out the application here.

The group is taking applications until Feb 1.

“We are thrilled to be offering this application to expand our life jacket loaner program in the 2021 boating season,” said Sea Tow Foundation executive director Gail Kukp in a statement. “Every new stand added and every opportunity to restock existing stands helps us make boating even more accessible and safe for everyone. We are so grateful to our partners at the U.S. Coast Guard for helping us save lives across the country.”

Since 2008, the Sea Tow Foundation has distributed more than 65,000 life jackets to local businesses and organizations across the country.

There are more than 700 Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Stations throughout the country that carry personal flotation devices ranging in size from infant through adult.
