The US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 88 of Lake County has been given a grant by Wal-Mart of Clearlake to purchase 150 children’s life jackets which will be given away free on Saturday, May 19. The life jacket giveaway activity will begin in the Wal-Mart parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., or until the supply is depleted.
Children must be accompanied by a parent to receive the free life jacket. The child will be weighed and then fitted with the correct size by a qualified Flotilla member and also be instructed on the proper way to wear and use the jacket. (Not all sizes are available.)
National Safe Boating Week begins May 19 and Flotilla 88 is striving to reduce the number of fatalities by encouraging everyone to wear a life jacket while out on the water, especially the children.
Location: Clearlake Wal-Mart, 15960 Dam Road, Clearlake.
