The Castlegar group will be sharing the proceeds with the groups in Nelson, South Columbia (Fruitvale), Rossland, and Salmo.</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm">“<font face="Verdana, sans-serif">We do so much mutual support work with one another, it only makes sense to share this great opportunity with all Search and Rescue volunteers in the West Kootenays,” states Barb Ihlen, President of Castlegar Society for Search and Rescue. “We receive $1,500 upfront from this promotion through the Treasure Chest. In general, we will receive $3.00 on each coupon book sold in our area.”</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font face="Verdana, sans-serif">Ihlen explains that even though Search and Rescue groups provide services to the RCMP, BC Ambulance Service, and the Coroner’s Office, they receive </font><font face="Verdana, sans-serif"><u><strong>no</strong></u></font><font face="Verdana, sans-serif"> funding from any government body – federal, provincial, or municipal. BC search and rescue groups are totally reliant on donations from individuals and organizations to purchase needed equipment and enhance the skills of volunteers.</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm">“<font face="Verdana, sans-serif">Our volunteers are selfless and use their specialized skills to ensure the best possible emergency response to those in need of our services.”</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font face="Verdana, sans-serif">For more information or to make a direct donation to Search and Rescue, please contact Castlegar Society for Search and Rescue @ (250)226-7277 or visit our web site at www.csar.bc.ca.</font></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0cm"><font face="Verdana, sans-serif">If you would like to purchase the Coupon Book that features local businesses, please contact 1-</font><font face="Verdana, sans-serif">866-839-0921</font><font face="Verdana, sans-serif">.</font></p> </div> <p class="postmetadata">Posted in <a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/category/news/" rel="category tag">News</a> | <span>Comments Off<span class="screen-reader-text"> on Local Search and Rescue Groups Benefit from Sponsorship</span></span></p> </div> <div class="navigation"> <div class="alignleft"></div> <div class="alignright"></div> </div> </div> <div id="sidebar"><img style="width: 150px; height: 176px;" alt="CSAR Logo" title="Castlegar Search & Rescue" src="/media/csar-crest.gif"> <ul id="navlist"> <li> <li class="pagenav">Pages<ul><li class="page_item page-item-75"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/">CSAR Home</a></li> <li class="page_item page-item-61"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/about-csar/">About CSAR</a></li> <li class="page_item page-item-2"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/contacts/">Contacts</a></li> <li class="page_item page-item-3"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/links/">Links</a></li> <li class="page_item page-item-337"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/member-resources/">Member Resources</a></li> <li class="page_item page-item-77 current_page_parent"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/search-events/">Search Events</a></li> </ul></li> <li>News <ul> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2012/02/'>February 2012</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2010/06/'>June 2010</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2008/10/'>October 2008</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2008/09/'>September 2008</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2008/02/'>February 2008</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2007/05/'>May 2007</a></li> <li><a href='http://www.csar.bc.ca/2007/03/'>March 2007</a></li> </ul> </li> <li>Categories <ul> <li class="cat-item cat-item-1"><a href="http://www.csar.bc.ca/category/news/" title="News bulletins from Castlegar SAR.">News</a> (8) </li> </ul> </li> <li>Search <form method="get" id="searchform" action="http://www.csar.bc.ca/"> <div><input type="text" value="" name="s" id="s" size="12"/> <input type="submit" id="searchsubmit" value="Search" /> </div> </form> </li> </ul> </div> <div id="footer"> <div style="float: left;"><a href="http://www.getfirefox.com/"><img src="/media/firefox.png" alt="Get Firefox!"></a><a href="http://www.wordpress.org/"><img src="/media/wp-powered.jpg" alt="Proudly Powered by Wordpress"></a></div> © 2001 - 2005 - Castlegar Society for Search & Rescue </div> <!-- 27 queries. 0.453 seconds. --> </div> </div> <script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.csar.bc.ca/wp-includes/js/wp-embed.min.js?ver=4.8.2'></script> </body> </html>
