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 http://www.moorings.com/socialresponsibility 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.”
