... for the donation

Juneau Mountain Rescue would like to thank Holland America for the recent donation. JMR is a volunteer nonprofit organization that relies on donations such as this to fund our organization. This donation will allow JMR to purchase and upgrade communication equipment (radios) critical for search and rescue operations.

JMR received more calls this past year than ever before and was asked to participate in several search, rescue and recovery operations involving missing tourists, hikers, hunters and others who found themselves in need while pursuing outdoor activities.

As the number of missions we are asked to do has increased, we have also had to recruit more volunteers for our search and rescue group. As the number of volunteers and the JMR membership increases, we need more radios and communication equipment. A donation such as this not only provides us with what we need to carry out our missions, but it also makes our members safer when conducting their assignments.
