On August 25th, Volendam’s crew welcomed aboard Katherine Mosley, President and Founder of the Paws and Claws Animal Shelter for Skagway and Hoonah, Alaska, along with some helpers. She personally came on board to accept a generous donation of $165, which was kindly donated by Volendam’s crew and was then doubled by both the captain and the safety and environmental health officer. Her organization is responsible for caring for sick and abused animals in one of Alaska’s most remote areas. With Volendam regularly visiting Alaskan waters to see wildlife and the natural beauty inherent to the area, they thought there was no better cause to donate to.
Drew Howell is Volendam’s human resources manager.
