Original Watermen to Lend Helping Hand to Families in Need

Original Watermen, a Vista, CA based distributor of lifeguard clothing and equipment, is introducing a program to donate equipment/uniforms to Junior Lifeguards from low-income families.

Original Watermen, online surf market retailer and lifeguard uniform supplier to over 2000 beaches and municipalities, will help aspiring Junior Lifeguards who couldn’t normally afford the program fees.

Original Watermen has supported lifeguard teams around the country since 2005. The company sells cold weather gear such as hoodies and jackets, as well as T-shirts, Swimsuits and Boardshorts to retailers and lifeguard organizations worldwide. Original Watermen's new program will help insure low-income families get set up with needed Junior Guard uniforms for summer 2015.
