Dear Fellow Boater,
Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor is teaming up with Harry Chapin Food Bank to fight against hunger in our community this holiday season. In 2013 the Harry Chapin Food Bank distributed 17.5 million pounds of food which provided approximately 14.6 million meals to people in need. In our community, 40% of the people in need are children.
This year, Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor, with the help of our local marinas and boat dealerships, will be collecting donations on behalf of Harry Chapin Food Bank.
To donate food and grocery items during the month of December, please visit one of these locations:
- Your local Sea Tow office at 4140 Whidden Blvd. Port Charlotte
- Burnt Store Marina - Fisherman's Village Marina - Ingman Marine in Port Charlotte - Laishley Park Marina - Gasparilla Marina -Punta Gorda Marina
Each month over 30,000 people in our community benefit from your generous donations. Please help Sea Tow Charlotte Harbor make this holiday season a little brighter for those in need.

Christmas Eve Day 7:30 - 2:00. Closed ChristmasRead More
The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light, I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight. My wife was asleep, her head on my chest, My daughter beside me, angelic in rest. Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white, Transforming the yard to a winter delight.
The sparkling lights in the tree I believe, Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve. My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep, Secure and surrounded by love I would sleep. In perfect contentment, or so it would seem, So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.
The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near, But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.. Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know, Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow. My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear, And I crept to the door just to see who was near.
Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night, A lone figure stood, his face weary and tight. A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old, Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold. Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled, Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.
"What are you doing?" I asked without fear, "Come in this moment, it's freezing out here! Put down your pack, brush the snow from your sleeve, You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!" For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift, Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts..
To the window that danced with a warm fire's light Then he sighed and he said "It’s really all right, I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night." "It's my duty to stand at the front of the line, That separates you from the darkest of times.
No one had to ask or beg or implore me, I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before me. My Gramps died at ' Pearl on a day in December," Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas 'Gram always remembers." My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ', And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
I've not seen my own son in more than a while, But my wife sends me pictures, he's sure got her smile. Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag, The red, white, and blue... an American flag. I can live through the cold and the being alone, Away from my family, my house and my home.
I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet, I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat. I can carry the weight of killing another, Or lay down my life with my sister and brother.. Who stand at the front against any and all, To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall.."
" So go back inside," he said, "harbor no fright, Your family is waiting and I'll be all right." "But isn't there something I can do, at the least, "Give you money," I asked, "or prepare you a feast? It seems all too little for all that you've done, For being away from your wife and your son."
Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret, "Just tell us you love us, and never forget. To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone, To stand your own watch, no matter how long. For when we come home, either standing or dead, To know you remember we fought and we bled. Is payment enough, and with that we will trust, That we mattered to you as you mattered to us."
Christmas will be coming soon and some credit is due to our U.S service men and women for our being able to celebrate these festivities. Let's try to pay a tiny bit of what we owe to these great men and women, living and dead, who sacrificed themselves for us.Read More
