Memorial Fund Set Up for Families of Lost Fishing Crew

Posted by Eric Haun

Joining members of the maritime community to assist families of
the six crew members of the FV Destination that went missing in
the Bering Sea on February 11, 2017, Peoples Bank is now
collecting donations for the families of the missing crew
members.

Donations to the F/V Destination Memorial Fund can be made at all
Peoples Bank locations throughout Western Washington, and Peoples
Bank, a long-time banking partner for the North Pacific Fleet,
will not take any fees associated with the contributions made to
this fund. Fully 100 percent of all donations made at Peoples
Bank branches will be donated directly to the crew members'
families.

The F/V Destination was registered in Sand Point, Alaska, and
sailed out of Seattle. Casey McManus, captain of the F/V Cornelia
Marie, one of the commercial crab fishing boats featured on the
Discovery Channel series Deadliest Catch, is a Peoples Bank
customer and an officer of the Memorial Fund. In a recent Seattle
Times article he said of the crew, "They were all such good guys.
Everyone sort of walks around in Dutch Harbor and stares at each
other in disbelief that it would happen to this boat. We're
concentrating now on how to support our lost brothers, families
and their kids."

In addition to donations made at all Peoples Bank branches,
contributions can be made by check payable to the "F/V
Destination Charitable Fund" and mailed to:
