Members of the Gulf Harbors Yacht Club are active in community service, both in their private lives and as Club members. Each year, the Club is privileged to support one or more local charities with monetary donations.
We have been able to assist many charities, including:
- Fostering Hope
- Local animal shelters
- Volunteer Way
- Local nursing homes and care facilities
- Sand Soldiers
- Toys for Tots
- Gulf Harbors Yacht Club is also a Toys for Tots collection site. Historically, our members’ generosity has filled more than 4 overflowing boxes with toys and bicycles to support this important effort.
- PACE Center for Girls
- Annual Children’s Christmas Party
- Another way Gulf Harbors Yacht Club gives back to the community. Area children are invited to join us for a Saturday lunch and meet Santa party, where carols are sung and Santa arrives by boat with presents for all.
Our 2020 service project was a donation of $950. to the St. Vincent de Paul food bank. With our contribution, the charity was able to distribute food to local families in need during the Pandemic.
The efforts of our Anchorettes makes much of this possible.
