“Water safety is top of mind for all of us here at Coastal,” according to Coastal CEO Lori McKinnon. “Some of our employees have shared with me over the years their personal experiences with family members drowning in lakes and rivers, when they believe simply wearing a life jacket could have made all the difference,” continued McKinnon. “This year we are giving away 6,000 life jackets to kids in the communities we serve. We hope that we can help make a difference when it comes to families coming home safe after a day of playing in the water,” concluded McKinnon.
