Life Jacket Drive Events

Help the Sea Tow Foundation plan and conduct Life Jacket Drives in your area to collect new and gently used life jackets to ensure there are enough life jackets for people who need them. Life Jacket Drives are used to replenish Life Jacket Loaner Stations, establish new stations, and to benefit events that need many life jackets at one time such as: antique boat parades, first-time water experiences, fishing derbies, paddle sports, pirate days, raft-ups, swim education, and wake board events.
