On Giving Tuesday, Hydro Flask, the award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks and soft good innovations, announced grant recipients of their 2018 Parks For All Charitable Giving Program. In total, the company donated over half a million dollars in 2018 to preserve, maintain and provide better access to green spaces and parks of all sizes.
Hydro Flask launched its charitable grant and advocacy “Parks For All” program in January 2017. Parks For All supports the development, maintenance and accessibility of public green spaces in the U.S. and beyond so people everywhere can live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives.
“It is so exciting for Hydro Flask to be able to make such a large and meaningful contribution to the incredible work being done by nonprofits in the realm of building, restoring, maintaining, and increasing access and education around Parks for All,” said Indigo Teiwes, Senior Corporate Social Responsibility Manager for Hydro Flask. “The staff team that reviewed the applications is inspired by the breadth and depth of work being done by our 2018 grantees.”
PNTA AWARDED WITH PARKS FOR ALL GRANT
The Pacific Northwest Trail Association was selected as one of sixteen nonprofit organizations for funding under the Parks for All Program. Hydro Flask awarded PNTA with $20,700 in grant funding to support training for PNTA’s youth trail crew and volunteer trail maintenance programs for the 2019 season.
Each spring, PNTA provides Crew Leaders and seasonal staff with valuable training, which includes: sawyer certification, bear aware training, wilderness first aid/ wilderness first responder certification, training in the Leave No Trace Seven Principles, and other important skills that ensure crew safety and benefit the Pacific Northwest Trail.
“This project will greatly increase our capacity for recruiting and training our seasonal employees and volunteers,” said Jeff Kish, Executive Director for the Pacific Northwest Trail Association. “With a larger, better-trained workforce we can build and maintain more trail as well as prepare and empower individuals to continue their stewardship both locally and wherever they choose to be involved in public lands.”
