Connor Sports and the Green Sports Alliance (GSA) provided the Yes Prep Northside charter high school in Houston with an eco-friendly makeover as the GSA 2016 Green Apple Day of Service project.
The GSA 2016 Summit Green Sports Green Apple Day of Service Project Presented by Connor Sports was completed by representatives of Connor Sports and GSA partners’ HOK, U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)-Texas and the Center for Green Schools at USGBC. Volunteers came together to spruce up the exterior of the school with external landscaping and raised bed plantings for the schools’ Garden Club and provide an upgrade to the school’s physical education storage and weight training facilities.
“At Connor Sports we know as Champions of Environment and as a leader in the global sports industry, that outdoor recreation and safe play for school-age children is extremely important to the growth and well-being of all students,” said Jason Gasperich, Director of Sustainability for Connor Sports. “Our growing strategic partnership with the Green Sports Alliance and the hosting of the 2016 GSA Day of Service project Houston has provided an excellent platform and opportunity for our Connor Sports Cares community initiative program to truly give back to the Houston community in a tangible and sustainable manner that will live on after the Summit.”
