How you can help our Coast Guard community

By on October 24, 2020

This message was posted by the U.S. Coast Guard Station Hatteras Inlet listing items that are needed by families left devastated by yesterday’s fire in Buxton.

To our Family, Friends, and Community, We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support during this trying time. The unfortunate event that has devastated our Coast Guard and local community, not only claimed lives, but also left families with very little personal belongings. Due to the overwhelming outpouring of support and requests to help us, we have put together the following list of items that are needed by the families.

Thank you for all of your support and kind words.
