Each year, TSAR members stand in front of local stores to raise our annual operating budget of $36,000. This year due to COVID, although we are still responding to missions and training with safety-protocols in place, we are unable to fundraise in public spaces and so have decided to hold a virtual fund drive. TSAR receives no State or Federal funding and depends solely on the generosity of our community to meet our annual goal. Your contribution will allow us to cover the following expenses: insurance, team vehicle maintenance and operation, equipment and supplies, organizational fees, office expenses, and more. Our individual volunteers not only give of their time, expertise and experience, but also invest in their own gear and equipment. Our volunteers are dedicated to service and work as a team, not for individual recognition or glory. In these difficult times, TSAR believes the number of missions could increase due to more people seeking the outdoors as a reprieve from COVID limitations in their lives. While we know that our community may be also facing limitations, we know that we must be at the ready as lives become at risk, making meeting our budget more important than ever. Please consider TSAR during your end-of-year giving! Thank you for your consideration and generosity to our cause.
