More than 57,000 Square Feet of Green Space Restored in New York and Philadelphia to Date
STRATHAM, N.H., October 18, 2017 /3BL Media/ - Outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland today announces the completion of its second annual urban greening commitment to create and restore outdoor spaces in the U.S. with a transformative community service event in Philadelphia last week.
Congress is back from its August recess and will debate budget appropriations for fiscal year 2018 in the coming months. Thankfully, both the Senate and House Appropriations committees have approved maintaining funding for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that runs AmeriCorps and Senior Corps, and funds other national service programs. At Timberland, we believe strongly in the power of service, and we applaud this bipartisan support for national service.
While the name Serv-a-Palooza may conjure thoughts of the mid-to-late 1990s, global outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland’s enthusiasm for its annual day of service is as current as ever. Over 350 employees of Timberland’s Stratham, New Hampshire headquarters and guests pulled on their boots on September 14 to serve at seven community projects aimed to make nearby communities a little brighter. The company’s seven projects benefitted nonprofit organizations based in New Hampshire. Each of the seven projects was planned, managed and led by employees.
At last week’s Climate Week in New York City, I participated in a unique panel discussion entitled: Can business help take back our climate to be fit for life again? And how? Held at the Flanders House, the cross-sector panel was organized by CO2logic, Connect4Climate, The General Delegation of the Government of Flanders to the U.S.A., IFC (World Bank Group), and the New York City chapter of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals.
This fall, there will be three more classrooms at the Cienfuegos Daycare Center, thanks to outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland and its parent company, VF Corporation. The daycare center, located in one of the poorest areas in the Dominican Republic, cares for many of the children of employees at both the Recreation Footwear Company (RFC), Timberland’s owned footwear factory, and Sun Jade, a factory that makes footwear for Vans, another VF brand.
Timberland’s Victory Garden started as a small plot in the front yard of its headquarters in New Hampshire in 2008. Today, it consists of four large raised beds where, each season, green-fingered staff produce hundreds of kilos of fresh produce and flowers.
Recently, employees of outdoor lifestyle brand Timberland took a few hours away from their desks to participate in an in-house service event in support of Honor Flight New England. Honor Flight’s mission is to transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials dedicated to honoring their service and sacrifices. In preparation for the next flight, scheduled for Sunday, September 24, Timberland employees made patriotic blankets and handmade cards for the veterans.
