(SALEM, Ore.) - For the last several years, seven volunteer Search and Rescue Teams in Marion County have asked a local firm to raise funds to benefit Search and Rescue operations in Marion County.

The majority of these Search and Rescue Teams are Non-Profit organizations, and rely heavily on donations from the public to fund necessary equipment and training. Private donations help them to complete their mission in finding lost or injured people in the outdoors, and saving lives.

The local promoter uses a telephone fund raising campaign to solicit donations that benefit the Volunteer Search and Rescue Teams.

If you receive a phone call from anyone soliciting funds to this volunteer effort and you have any questions about its validity, please feel free to contact the Marion County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue Coordinator at (503) 584-7510.

Additional information about our volunteer Search and Rescue Teams can be found on the Sheriff's Office Website:
