Nautique Cares initiative works in El Salvador

Twenty Nautique athletes, dealers and employees traveled from Orlando, Fla., to El Salvador from Oct. 18-21 to serve as part of the Nautique Cares initiative.

The group built a library in the shape of a boat at a rural mountain school for nearly 400 students. The team also had the opportunity to interact with students at the school, where they passed out supplies and played soccer with the children.

In addition to their work at the school, Team Nautique distributed food to more than 400 needy families in rural mountain communities and provided a water filtration system that will supply the communities with as much as 1 million gallons of fresh water.

This is the seventh year of service trips for Nautique. Employees have gone to El Salvador, Mexico, India, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and the Apache Reservation in Arizona.

“Our athletes have served our local community through Nautique Cares initiatives for Give Kids the World and Habitat for Humanity, but this was the first time we have taken our athletes or dealers on an international service trip,” Nautique president and CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. “Our athletes, employees and dealers were all excited to serve; we are all thrilled to be part of a team that wants to not only build the world’s best boats, but also use our resources to help others.”
