Employees and members of Nautique Boat Company’s competition teams helped rebuild homes that were damaged by storms in Puerto Rico.

A group of employees and team athletes from the Nautique Boat Company visited Puerto Rico to help rebuild a home that was damaged by Hurricane Maria when it hit the island last year.

The Nautique crew helped rebuild a family’s home after the high winds leveled the house. Athletes Erika Lang and Jodi Grassman were part of the team that also included members of the marketing, manufacturing and product design departments.

A Nautique employee, Norberto Del Valle, is from the area and was part of the rebuilding effort. “I was very grateful to be able to visit my hometown of Cayey and help rebuild after Hurricane Maria,” he said in a statement. “Although it was a humbling experience to see how devastated the area was, it was also rewarding to visit where I grew up and to lend a hand where we could. I’m very thankful to Nautique for giving us the chance to reach out and help people in need.”
