Corona Cares - Giving Back to Our Communities
Providing quality garden and landscape tools to support community organizations in need
Since Corona Tools was founded in 1928, we have have never lost sight of our heritage. Helping those in need, with quality tools to be successful in their task. Through the Corona Cares program, we are giving back to those organizations who help support the communities we live in.
In 2019, our Corona Cares program will be unlike any we've done in the past. We've partnered with some amazing organizations within the green industry, to help us get tools into the hands of community support programs and those who help make them work. Programs including projects who are planting trees in our urban communities, teach gardening skills and lessons through school gardens, develop and maintain therapeutic gardens to help those battling life-threatening illnesses and growing food in community gardens to provide to local residents who don't have access to fresh food.
These organizations include;
Arbor Day Foundation's Alliance for Community Trees - National Neighborwoods Month
Katie's Krops - National organization with over 100 gardens, bring fresh food to those in need
Seed Keeper Project - National program that recognizes school garden in every state in the US
National Garden Bureau - Therapeutic Garden Grant
In working with these organizations we are certain to get tools that are needed most, into the hands of community support members who make them a success. It's also an opportunity to work hand-in-hand with organizations in our industry to raise more awareness to these incredible non-profit and philanthropic programs.
