Mercury Employees Support Fill The Boat Food Drive

Mercury Marine employees in Fond du Lac donated approximately 3,000 food items and $7,500 to the Fondy Food Pantry during the fourth annual Fill the Boat to Cast Out Hunger food drive. Donations came from employees in all Mercury Marine facilities in Fond du Lac over a four-day period, June 9-12. The Fondy Food Pantry has been providing essential food assistance to thousands of individuals and families in need in the Fond du Lac area since 1973.  Travis Drehmel, a Mercury employee in Fond du Lac, led the food drive for the second consecutive year. “It’s motivating to see the level of employee enthusiasm for this charitable event,” said Drehmel, “especially considering the scale of the event in its compressed time frame. Not only does the volunteer effort make the Fill the Boat to Cast Out Hunger food drive a success, the donations we provide each year make me especially proud to be part of it. It’s a great cause for a great organization.”
