Assistance to U.S. Coast Guard During Shutdown

U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association logoMany Lincoln County residents have asked how to help our Coast Guard members and other federal employees during the government shutdown. There are restrictions on donations and gifts that limit what the Coast Guard is allowed to accept. 

The Chief Petty Officers Association of North Bend is a non-profit organization that serves Coast Guard members in their district. Monetary donations may be mailed to them at 2000 Connecticut Ave., North Bend, OR 97459. Specify on your check in the notes section which unit you would like to help (Newport, Depoe Bay, etc.) The funds will then be distributed to the specific Coast Guard station. 

Checks should be made payable to: Chief Petty Officers Association North Bend 

The Coast Guard is aware of Lincoln County resources that are available, such as Food Share, Lincoln County Animal Shelter for pet needs, and programs that are available through Central Lincoln PUD, and the City of Newport Finance Department (water billing). 

The Coast Guard may also accept gift cards for grocery stores and other services in the amount of $20 or less. These may be sent directly to the individual station or dropped off in person. 

Donations directly to Food Share of Lincoln County and the Lincoln County Animal Shelter are also encouraged.
