Sea Tow PFD Loaner Program Receives $20,000 Donation
June 4, 2013
Sea Tow Services International, Inc., the leading provider of non-emergency on-water assistance, announced that the Sea Tow Foundation’s Life Jacket Loaner Station program has received a $20,000 donation from beverage distributor Clare Rose, Inc. of Yaphank, New York, and American brewing giant Anheuser-Busch of St. Louis. The donation will enable the nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation to continue making adult-sized lifejackets available at loaner stations at Sea Tow locations, marinas, boat ramps, local police and fire stations, and yacht clubs throughout Long Island.
The Life Jacket Loaner Station program allows boaters to borrow lifejackets to replace missing, damaged or ill-fitting personal flotation devices (PFDs), or to use for extra guests onboard their boats.

“We are honored to be aligned with Clare Rose, a like-minded, local family-run business, and with Anheuser-Busch, which has been the industry leader in promoting alcohol responsibility on and off the water for the past 30 years,” said Sea Tow Founder and CEO, Captain Joe Frohnhoefer at a press conference held at Sea Tow Freeport, Freeport, New York, on May 16. “In addition to encouraging boaters to wear life jackets, we ask all boaters to Take the Pledge to Boat Responsibly and to Designate a Sober Skipper. We want to do what we can to help reduce preventable accidents and have a safer 2013 season.”
