So what happens with my donation now that the government is temporarily reopening?

On January 25 Donald Trump announced that he would sign a Bill reopening government for 21 days; after which he may close the government again. Both Houses passed a bill to reopen government until February 15, and Donald Trump endorsed it. As of this moment, government has been reopened. But another reality is that we may need your donation soon, if Donald Trump closes the government again on February 15 as he stated he may do.

Traverse City Supports Coast Guard Families During Shutdown

"People who serve in the Coast Guard don’t do it for the riches. They do it because they love our country; they want to serve the country they love," Emily Garris said. "And for us to just be cast aside, this is hurtful. We put so much on the line every day."

Freshwater Events is partnering with the Cherryland VFW Post to put on a fundraiser this weekend for Coast Guard families. Donations to those families will help with things like groceries, utilities and living expenses, and even medical bills.
