Supporting International Rescue Group And Haiti Relief Efforts

Ebw Blog Int Rescue Group

We are honored to have Captain Sequoia and the sailing vessel “TANDEMEER” of International Rescue Group docked here at Essex Boat Works. We will be heading up a collection Thursday, Oct. 6th – Saturday, Oct. 8th for Haiti disaster relief effort. This organization is 100% volunteer with zero overhead. Three of these boats go to the remote locations, exactly where the needs are. We just learned this morning that of greatest urgency in the most hard hit areas are compact tools and building supplies such as hammers, saws, nails, screws, etc. that can fit in the boat. Please drop donations off at Essex Boat Works 9 Ferry Street, Essex, CT or make cash donations at
