Edgewater, FL (November 9, 2011)
Boston Whaler and Brunswick Commercial and Government Products employees and family members recently collected generous donations at the annual company picnic to help support local organizations. With approximately 360 employees and family members in attendance, the company picnic and donation drive was a great success.
During the picnic, numerous boxes of non-perishable food items were collected, which will be donated to the Halifax Urban Ministry. Additionally, several boxes of pet food will be given to local animal shelters, and two large boxes of toys will be donated to the Edgewater Fire Department's project, "Caring." The project delivers toys to local families in the Edgewater, New Smyrna Beach and Oak Hill areas during the holidays.
In addition to the food and toy drive, the picnic also included a Disney ticket drawing, bake sale, cake walk and salsa sale, all of which resulted in $666.50 to be donated to local animal shelters and the Edgewater Fire Department's "Caring" project.
"Boston Whaler believes that it's important to give back to the community and help those in need," says Boston Whaler President, Tim Schiek. "Each year we gather together at the company picnic to do just that."
