“CSI is proud to support Project EverGreen and the vital role that their organization plays in communities around the country,” says Ty Ferraro, marketing director for CSI. “We look forward to developing this partnership and helping to enhance green spaces in urban centers nationwide.”
The contribution will be used to support logistical, promotional and project-specific resources required to plan and deliver GreenCare for Communities projects. In 2021, Project EverGreen and its partners have major renovation projects scheduled in Cleveland, Detroit and New York City; and several collaborative projects in the planning stages. The program has restored more than 1 million square feet of healthy grass and green spaces in urban areas across the U.S.
“Parks play a vital role in the health and well-being of youth and adults alike; a fact never more evident than during the quarantining and social distancing we experienced the last 12 months. Connecting people to their parks enhances social well-being, relationships, safety and environmental health,” says Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen. “With CSI’s generous donation, we can expand our GreenCare for Communities initiative to more urban centers.”
