Edgewater, Fla. (September 10, 2013) - To help kick off the new school year, Boston Whaler held its third annual "Boatload of Backpacks" event this August, donating 150 backpacks filled with school supplies to three local elementary schools.
Edgewater Public School, Indian River Elementary, and Burns Science and Technology Charter School each received 50 backpacks and two boxes of copy paper. A team of Boston Whaler staff including President Huw Bower arrived at each school towing a 170 Super Sport filled with supplies, which the students eagerly helped to unload.
The backpacks were distributed by each school to classrooms with students that may need additional support throughout the school year. "Boston Whaler is proud to support our local community," said Bower. "It's gratifying to help these young students prepare for the academic year."
