Coast Guard Foundation Provides Support For Station Chatham

In 2015, the Coast Guard Foundation funded a new $10,000 crew lounge for the station formerly known as Chatham Lifeboat Station – now Coast Guard Station Chatham – the location of Disney’s new blockbuster movie The Finest Hours. The crew lounge features new furniture, electronics, games and other morale items. While in the lounge, Coast Guard members can watch television, play video games, and catch up with family and friends. Meaningful morale support such as this offers an opportunity for Coast Guard members on duty to gather, recharge in-between assignments and better prepare for duty.

Philanthropic Efforts


This support for the station is vital – a single duty can last 48 to 72 hours, and during that time, on a typical day, Coast Guard members are involved with training and coordinating response to the many missions they are assigned to such as aids to navigation, search and rescue, and more. Station Chatham maintains a 24-hour communications watch monitoring the international distress frequencies and is responsible for launching response vessels from both Stage Harbor and the Chatham Fish Pier in Aunt Lydia’s Cove.

The Foundation has offered consistent support of the historic station. Recently, the Foundation ensured that service members and their families were able to celebrate the Coast Guard’s 225th birthday on August 4, 2015 by funding the Station’s celebration, as well as their holiday celebration in December. Support such as this for Station Chatham and others around the country is an important way the Foundation honors our servicemen and women for their commitment, and acknowledges their honor, respect and devotion to duty.
