Volunteering in Hollywood, FL on Thunderbird 5


Volunteering in Hollywood, FL on Thunderbird 5

Feb-2016 Click here to find out about our 2016 plans!

International Rescue Group is a humanitarian aid and disaster relief nonprofit with 501(c)(3) status, we have a boat in Hollywood that just returned from a 10 month mission in the Caribbean. Our last major operation was disaster relief in the island of Dominica which was hit by Tropical Storm Erika just a few weeks ago. Now our 97 foot traditional ketch has returned to Hollywood for re-fit before going back out into the Caribbean to provide scheduled humanitarian aid work in Haiti.


We are looking for volunteers for all kinds of projects including fundraising, events, visiting yacht clubs and presenting our marine-based story and recruiting boats to our operations, and also to work on our large vessel both in the water and in a marine yard to help refit, see list below.

We are a very sociable group, come and meet Captain Ray in Hollywood Saturdays and join us for a light lunch on board our boat Thunderbird 5 at anchor, get to hear about our organization and plans and sign up for the various fun weekend activities we're planning!

Please join here or contact Captain Ray at ray.thackeray@internationalrescuegroup.com or leave a message at 408-256-1290.
