    As is the case with many non-profit organizations across the country, California Ships to Reefs has launched its Year-End Volunteer/Fundraising campaign. We know that this has been a difficult year for many, including many of us and our friends. CSTR would like all our 2009 sponsors, donors, and volunteers to know how greatly we appreciate their continuing support for our efforts to enhance California’s coastal environment, and the economic situations of our coastal communities.

    While monetary donations are certainly critical to any non-profit organization, CSTR would like our supporters to know that there are many other ways they can provide assistance to the organization. Supporters can also make tax-deductible donations in the forms of personal property, real estate, vehicles, or boats. CSTR participates in several public events throughout the year such as the Fred Hall Fishing Tackle & Boat Shows, and the annual SCUBA Show sponsored by California Dive News. Business owners and manufacturers can contribute goods to be used as silent auction prizes, awards, and other gifts for participants in these events.

    First and foremost, California Ships to Reefs is an entirely volunteer-based organization. If a donation of funds or material goods is not possible, supporters are heartily encouraged to volunteer their time with any of our hard-working committees. 2009 has been an incredible year of advancement towards our ultimate goal of creating artificial reefs, and more than ever we need the help of volunteers committed to seeing California’s coastal environments and communities improved as never before.

    Finally, the motto of CSTR has always been “Loose Lips Sink Ships!” Please tell your friends and family about our volunteer/fundraising drive. Help us raise volunteers and resources needed for our ongoing projects like baseline studies, towing vessels to cleaning sites, permitting expenses, and all the details that go into a project.
    The Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to wish you all Happy Holidays!
