In recognition of Earth Day, BTC’s iVolunteer team in Long Island spent the day teaching students about the importance of caring for the environment. BTC provided trees for the five primary schools in Long Island and copies of the popular children’s’s story book, “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss.
The BTC team and the students also planted a Sea Grape tree at the Lower Cay Primary School. iVolunteer Diane Lockhart, read the story, The Lorax to the entire school. The story details environmental issues and gives a challenge to children to “care a whole awful lot.”
Manager for Public Relations, Indira Collie said, “We celebrated Earth Day, by taking the message that our environment is important to the youngest citizens of our country. We were happy to have our iVolunteer team in Long Island took up the mantle to be the change and took the time to read to the students and help them plant a tree.”
