O’Neill’s Pools Gathers Life Jackets for Area Loaner Stations
Colin’s Hope is excited to partner with O’Neill’s Pools as they gather life jackets for area loaner stations! Colin’s Hope works year-round to collect gently used life jackets of any size that can be placed at loaner stations for guests to use during their visits.
With 4th of July right around the corner, this is the perfect time to make sure your family’s life jackets still fit! If anyone has an ill-fitted jacket, or you are planning to get a new one, you can donate your gently used AND reusable jackets to O’Neill’s Pools in Lakeway in exchange for $5 off a new kid’s jacket.
Thank you, Amy and Neil!
How do I know if a life jacket fits properly?
Colin’s Hope uses 3 simple steps to make sure a US Coast Guard approved jacket fits well:
- All of the buckles should close, usually with a audible “click”
- It should be snug and tight (like a hug)
- A jacket should stay on your chest when arms are lifted OR when someone tugs on the shoulders
Hamilton Pool needs ADULT life jackets!
Now that Hamilton Pool is open for the summer, guests are utilizing the brand new life jacket loaner station! This is GREAT news, but we can really use your help to get more adult life jackets out there. Thinking of buying a new life jacket? Drop off your gently used adult-sized life jacket at O’Neill’s Pools as soon as you can, and we will make sure to get it out to our partners at Hamilton Pool!
Thank you, and have a BEST DAY EVER!
