The examiners will also make recommendations for your boat for operation in local waters. The Vessel Safety Check is available by appointment at the owner’s location in the Coos Bay, North Bend, Lakeside, Winchester Bay, Reedsport, and Bandon areas.

Christmas in July Gearing Up for 2017!

What would you do?

• You are handicapped; the electricity in your home is not working, and there is no money for repairs.

• Your heater is broken, the kids are shivering with cold, but your wages will not stretch to have it fixed.

• You are 80, the rain keeps falling, the roof is leaking and the Social Security check is not big enough.

Where do you turn for help?

Christmas in July preserves and revitalizes homes and our community, assuring that our low-income homeowners, the elderly, the disabled, and families with children live in warmth, safety and independence. In partnership with communities, our goal is to make a sustainable impact. Our entire mission is funded by donations and grants; and nearly all our workers are volunteers that give of their time and expertise to help their neighbors. Last year we helped 30 families!

We are kicking off our 2017 season and looking for volunteers to help with our projects as well as homeowners who need our help. The Volunteer and Homeowner Referral forms can be downloaded from our website at or folks can find printed forms available and located throughout the Reedsport area at the following locations:

o Reedsport City Hall – 451 Winchester Ave.
o KC ACE Hardware – 1350 Hwy. 101 S.
