Valley Search and Rescue (VSAR) is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization based in Kings County which started finding and rescuing lost persons in 1971. We are on call 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Besides Search and Rescue activities, we do woods-proofing classes for children, and are a resource for civil emergencies and natural disasters.

We do receive grants, but a significant portion of our operating budget and equipment must be gained through fundraising and donations. Our major means of fundraising is threefold:

  1. 50/50 draws - online monthly through the website Rafflebox, and in the summer at the Coldbrook Lion’s weekly BINGO.
  2. Annual firewood and other prize draws, usually held in the late summer and fall.
  3. Occasional community events where our help is needed.

Thank you for considering supporting us through a donation or participating in one of our fundraisers - 100% of the money we receive goes directly towards team expenses and equipment.
