LANCASTER, Pa.—Ecore International is taking part in the Today Show's Shine a Light program, donating flooring for a school garden in New York City.
Ecore said it is partnering with the National Gardening Association's KidsGardening.org and the Today Show to create a new garden at P.S. 705 in Brooklyn. The donation is part of Today's Shine a Light series.
“We are thrilled to join in and raise awareness and donate our products for an important cause,” Ecore CEO Art Dodge said. “By helping to create a safe environment for children to learn about their food, we are helping make a difference in children's health and futures.”
Host Carson Daly chose the initiative in an effort to raise awareness for childhood hunger and healthy eating. Ecore said Daly teamed up with KidsGardening.org to educate students on the importance of healthy eating and share what they learn throughout their communities.
KidsGardening.org is a group whose mission is to build a garden in every school across the country, Ecore said.
