Yacht charter company The Moorings has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a global initiative encouraging travellers to use their extra luggage space to deliver much-needed supplies to local schools, medical clinics and community projects near their holiday destination.
The Moorings’ flagship base in the British Virgin Islands will be the first of the company’s global locations to participate. It has collaborated with Family Support Network, which aims to improve families’ prospects through education. Charter clients can visit the Pack for a Purpose website to find a list of the inexpensive items needed, such as paper and pens, puzzles and games, socks, multivitamins and toiletries.
“Pack for a Purpose makes it so easy for customers like ours to make a difference,” says Shannan Brennan, head of global marketing for The Moorings. “We look forward to supporting the community that’s given us so much.”
