This year’s donation went to students at Edgewater and Oak Hill elementary schools.

For the ninth consecutive year, Boston Whaler employees participated in the Boatload of Backpacks program, a school supply drive for elementary school students and teachers.

Employee contributions of money and school supplies are matched by Boston Whaler. Employees delivered the supplies in boats to three Edgewater and Oak Hill elementary schools on August 23. At each school, students help unload the backpacks, and some get to check out the boats.

Boston Whaler team members Rebecca Crews, Faustina Shedlock, Kim Shaller, Dave Brannan, Kerry Jones and John Williams greeted the students at each school.

“It’s always an exciting and fun day for our team and the kids,” Nick Stickler, Boston Whaler president, said in a statement. “Boston Whaler is deeply integrated in the Edgewater and Oak Hill community. Many of us live here, we recruit employees here, and we have a strong connection to the area that really matters to us. The Boatload of Backpacks program is just one of many ways we work to give back to support our community and schools.”

On hand to receive the backpacks were principal Becky Porter and assistant principle Michelle Brown at Edgewater Public School; principal Carrie Crkvenac and assistant principal Jennifer Holmgreen at Indian River Elementary; and principal Dr. Jan McGee, assistant principal Dan Hardgraves and tech teacher Lola Kemick at Burns Science and Technology Charter School. Each school receives 50 backpacks with school supply kits.
