I need YOUR help. I just found out about a National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration grant announcement that we can
use to clean up the Gravina Island shoreline. The problem
is it is due on December 12!
If you or your organization can assist with the cleanup as a
volunteer, equipment operator volunteer or offer other assistance,
please contact me and let me know.
We need to match the funds we would receive from the grant.
If we have a list of volunteers, equipment and other assistance
in the cleanup, we can use this as matching "funds".
It states" Match can come from a variety of publlic and
private sources and can include in-kind goods and
services such as private boat use and volunteer labor."
Should you be able to help, please send a letter stating that
you would like to help with the "Gravina Island Shoreline
Cleanup" and list the volunteers, material, or goods you
can assist with and their estimated value.
A statement of how much this project is needed would also be
