IGY Marinas, volunteers give back


IGY Marinas gathered more than 400 volunteers at the end of February for its annual community outreach event, Inspire Giving through You. Company employees, marina staff, Anchor Club corporate partners, yacht owners, captains and crew spent the day supporting local charitable organizations in the Caribbean and Latin America.

In Colombia, for example, volunteers from Marina Santa Marta partnered with Fundehumac to rebuild a school’s ceiling. In Mexico, volunteers at Marina Cabo San Lucas worked with the local fire brigade to provide a covered structure for the on-site vehicles and equipment, as well as install an anti-theft perimeter fencing and replace the facility’s water pump.

In St. Thomas, volunteers from Yacht Haven Grande Marina and American Yacht Harbor began the initial build out on the Hydrologic Environmental Learning Center at Addelita Cancryn Junior High School.
