Repurposing used life jackets

The Big Pine Coast Guard Auxiliary is repurposing used life jackets.

If you have lifejackets that your children or grandchildren have outgrown and are willing to donate them, the auxiliary will inspect them for serviceable use and then give them out free to children who may not have one.

Deliver the life jackets from 3 to 5 p.m. July 26 at the auxiliary's mobile communications trailer at Venture Out on Cudjoe Key, and from 4 to 6 p.m. July 27 at the Big Pine Fishing Lodge.

Also, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., July 29, auxiliary volunteers will be at the Bahia Honda lobster miniseason event.

For information, or to arrange pickup, call 305-744-3774.
