Completed projects included:

  • Nautique and Correct Craft employees traveled to Boynton Beach, Fla., on Friday to serve at The Lord’s Place, a homeless shelter that has served Palm Beach County for more than three decades. Employees painted the inside of 17 apartments used to house men who are going through a 12-month program to help end homelessness. They also painted parking lot lines and hosted a catered lunch for the men and the staff.
  • Bass Cat and Yar-Craft employees assisted in the Backpack Food 4 Kids program, which is administered in their hometown of Mountain Home, Ark. Employees helped pack backpacks with food, clothing and personal hygiene products.
  • Aktion Parks employees organized food drives at the Orlando Watersports Complex and the Miami Watersports Complex. Food was delivered to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orlando and the Miami Rescue Mission.
  • Pleasurecraft Engine Group employees hosted a food drive benefiting “We Care” Chapin. On Saturday Pleasurecraft employees also volunteered their time with a local ministry, Good Works, helping families in the community with tasks such as plumbing, bathroom repair and the repair of holes in floors, porches and steps.
  • Centurion and Supreme employees hosted a food drive benefiting the Merced (Calif.) County Food Bank. On Saturday, Centurion and Supreme employees held a cleanup at Lake Yosemite in Merced, where they had a team that gave first-time boat rides to children and families in the community.
  • SeaArk employees hosted a pool party/cookout for the children of the Arkansas Baptist Children’s Home in Monticello, Ark. The home seeks to provide abused children with a place of safety and security where they can grow physically, emotionally, academically and spiritually. SeaArk employees cooked hamburgers for everyone with chips, drinks and watermelon.

“I cannot begin to express how proud I am of our Correct Craft companies and employees for investing back in their communities,” Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement.

“Correct Craft has grown tremendously the past few years, and it thrills me so see our new companies joining so willingly in the Correct Craft culture of service. Our team truly wants to make life better for others.”
