Karen Schrader attributes much of Sea Tow Hampton Roads’ Stuff-a-Boat drive’s success to the help of local anglers’ groups she and her husband have gotten to know over the years.
“We approached five of our local fishing clubs and asked their members each to bring a toy to their next meeting,” she said. These clubs include the Great Bridge Fisherman’s Association, Norfolk Anglers Club, Portsmouth Anglers Club, Tidewater Anglers Club and Virginia Beach Anglers Club.
“The fishing clubs have been great to work with, and have really put their hearts into this drive,” Karen said. “It has taken a lot of effort, but it is well worth it when I picture all the smiles it will put on children’s faces on Christmas morning.”
