Mercury Marine employees in Fond du Lac, Wis., donated more than $5,600 in cash and PayPal contributions and more than 2,500 pounds of food for the company’s annual Fill the Boat to Cast Out Hunger drive, supporting the Fondy Food Pantry.

“After a year off for Covid-19 precautions, our employees were especially enthusiastic for this year’s event, which showed through their hard work and dedication,” Andres Gonzalez, Mercury Marine vice president of human resources, said in a statement. “To generate this kind of support for the Fondy Food Pantry in one week is inspiring, especially given the challenges of the past year.”

The Fondy Food Pantry serves about 1,100 individuals and distributes an average of 30,000 pounds of food each month. Some 780 children are fed every week.

“Fond du Lac is our home, and we are committed to supporting our neighbors, including those who face food insecurity,” Gonzalez said. “Events like Fill the Boat are one of many examples of our employees working together to help our community.”
