Description:

In 1998, after 14 years of island service, Canvasback's expanding programs had outgrown the catamaran. It was then that, in a history-making act, Congress donated the 133-ft. U.S. Coast Guard cutter White Holly to Canvasback Missions. A year later the mission gained physical possession of the ship and began preparations to turn her into a medical vessel. The White Holly was initially seen as a direct answer to prayer for a larger ship, and volunteers rallied to sail her from Baltimore through the Panama Canal to California. Meanwhile, Canvasback continued to expand it's specialty team programs among the islands of the FSM. However, in time it became clear that, though much larger than the catamaran, the White Holly was still deficient in space and configuration required for the new programs. The sale of the White Holly to another nonprofit organization provided the funds needed to continue building solid programs of services for the FSM and the RMI. These services include providing much-needed health care for the island people, continuing education for island health care workers, and supplies and equipment for island hospitals. In fact, between 2000 and 2004, Canvasback Missions provided more than $4.1 million worth of services to the FSM when calculated at low Medicare rates. Historically, the mission has been able to provide more than $4 worth of service for every $1 in donations received, making the mission an excellent vehicle for multiplying charitable dollars.
