Marquis and Carver Yachts said its employees in Pulaski, Wis., donated more than $80,000 worth of material and equipment to Pulaski High School and Saints Edward & Isidore Catholic Church.

The company said the high school received more than 1,000 board-feet of lumber, hundreds of plywood sheets and finishing wood, as well as a down-draft table, two disc-table sanders and a chop saw.

The church received more than 3,200 square feet of plywood.

"Supporting the growth and education, while simultaneously encouraging the development of our youth, to provide a set of skills and abilities they can use into the future to contribute back to into our community as young adults is very rewarding," Marquis and Carver Yachts vice president of operations Paul Liss said in a statement.
