Park County Search and Rescue Gets Donation from Local Group
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 1, 2022
After doing so much for the community, Park County Search and Rescue receives a donation from a local outdoor organization to help them do their crucial work.
The Park County Sheriff’s Office has received a donation of $2,000 from the Cody Country Outfitters and Guides Association. That donation is now in the operating budget of the Park County Search and Rescue team.
The $2,000 donation was accompanied by a letter, thanking P.C.S.A.R. for their years of service and safety in northwest Wyoming.
“C.C.O.G.A. is grateful and thankful we have a professional group in the Park County Search and Rescue organization.” The C.C.O.G.A. Chairman for the Fund-Raising Committee, Glen Pawley, said, “after all of the years that Search and Rescue has helped out this community, we decided this was a good use of the funds.”
Park County Search and Rescue are grateful for this and all donations they receive.
The donation, which came from the proceeds of a rifle raffle, is to be used in supporting the team and furthering the operational budget of PCSAR.
