The Moorings Establishes Charity Partnership with Pack for a Purpose

Moorings Social


The Moorings is proud to announce a new partnership with Pack for a Purpose, a global initiative that helps travellers make a lasting impact on their destinations and the communities within them.

Pack for a Purpose encourages individuals to use their extra luggage space to deliver much-needed supplies to local schools, medical clinics and various community projects in their destination. Upon arrival, one simply drops off their donation at a designated local business and continues their vacation with the satisfaction of helping others in need.

The Moorings’ flagship base in the British Virgin Islands will be the first of the company’s global locations to participate in the initiative. The base will work to support Family Support Network (FSN) in their various efforts to eradicate domestic violence in the BVI and beyond. Through education that leads to prevention, support for those in crisis, and rehabilitation through counseling and networking, FSN hopes to achieve its mission, but they can’t do it alone.

Charter clients are encouraged to visit before their trip. Here, they’ll find a list of common, inexpensive items that they can easily pack in their luggage and drop off at the base upon their arrival. Moorings staff will gather all donations at the end of the month and deliver them to the Family Support Network.

“Basic supplies like diapers, pens and socks might not seem that significant to many of us, but they can make a world of difference for a non-profit like Family Support Network,” said Shannan Brennan, Head of Global Marketing for The Moorings. “What’s amazing about Pack for a Purpose is how easy they make it for a company and customers like ours to help. We look forward to giving back to the community that’s given so much to us over the years.”

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
