Backpack & School Supplies DrivePreparing kids to start the year right
Using collection boxes at marine industry businesses partners we invite their employees, customers, students and friends to donate school supplies. The industry is invited to an Annual Summer Beach Cookout hosted by IGY Marinas where we collect supplies and wind down the summer. To date, 125 filled back-packs have been delivered to middle and high school students at our partner schools. If a student ever shows up without the proper supplies for success, we have equipped teachers/staff with the capacity to quickly remove that barrier. The program is in conjunction with the IGY Marinas community outreach initiative.
