Bass Pro Shops Donates Boats

SA Bass - - Angling International -

Hous­ton, Texas - In the wake of one of the most cat­a­strophic nat­u­ral events to hit North Amer­ica in liv­ing mem­ory, mega-re­tailer Bass Pro Shops is lend­ing a hand by do­nat­ing more than 80 boats to res­cue mis­sions for Hur­ri­cane Har­vey.

Ac­cord­ing to a com­pany re­lease, the boats will come from the Spring­field-based dealer’s Tracker Boats brand.

Re­cent re­ports from Hous­ton me­dia claim that more than 3,000 peo­ple have been re­cruited to help save the vic­tims of record break­ing floods.

“Bass Pro Shops is co­or­di­nat­ing with lo­cal, state and fed­eral agen­cies – in­clud­ing po­lice, fire and res­cue teams on the ground – to sup­port on­go­ing res­cue and re­lief ef­forts re­lated to Hur­ri­cane Har­vey,” stated the re­lease. “The out­door com­pany is pro­vid­ing more than 80 Tracker boats to gov­ern­ment agen­cies and res­cue or­ga­ni­za­tions in Hous­ton and other im­pacted com­mu­ni­ties in Texas.” Bass Pro Shops move echoes that of out­doors en­thu­si­asts across the coun­try, some of whom - like Louisiana’s Ca­jun Navy - have taken it upon them­selves to lend as­sis­tance and save lives in the wake of the storm.
