Boston Whaler matched employee contributions one-to-one, resulting in a complete school supply list for 150 area students. The “Boatload of Backpacks” was delivered by a 150 Super Sport to Edgewater Elementary, Indian River Elementary and Burns Science and Technology Charter School.

“Boston Whaler prides itself in being a part of our local community,” Boston Whaler president Tim Schiek said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be able to help these young students prepare for a successful future.”

Boston Whaler delivered 50 backpacks to each school. The backpacks will be distributed by each school to a select number of students who might need additional support during the school year.
