Help Us Replace our Food Truck!

November 27, 2016

Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue is an all-volunteer organization with over 300 volunteers on-call 24 hours a day to assist with emergencies and disasters, including locating missing children, saving injured hikers, and performing rescues during storms and other natural disasters like the Oso mudslide.

We need to raise $120,000 to replace our 20-year-old food truck and we need your help to do it!

If you’re a ground searcher about to head out with a team on a mission, it’s very encouraging to have a hot meal before you leave, and know that there’s a hot meal, and a smile, waiting for you when you return.

If you’re a family member or a friend desperately waiting for word for your loved one, a hot meal, served with love, makes a big difference.   If you’re an out-of-county SAR volunteer helping us with one of our missions, a hot meal is one way we’re able to say “thank you for your support”.

Our food truck has also fed and supported multiple other agencies, as it did following the Oso landslide, where it operated nearly every day for more than 30 days.

Your donation will help us replace this vital piece of equipment that helps us fulfill our mission so “That Others May Live!”
