Boston Whaler matched employee contributions of money and supplies, including notebooks, crayons, pencils, erasers, glue sticks and scissors. In keeping with Covid-19 safety precautions, the kits also contained disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer.

“We appreciate all that our local teachers, principals and elementary school staff do to educate and prepare young students for a successful future,” Boston Whaler president Nick Stickler said in a statement. “As a company and as individuals, this community is our home; we feel privileged to give back and show our support with efforts like Boatload of Backpacks.”
