Scotts Miracle-Gro and the National Wildlife Federation have partnered to connect children with nature through the NWF’s “Be Out There” initiative. As the national presenting sponsor, Scotts Miracle-Gro will enhance NWF’s programs to create green spaces and attract wildlife to backyards and communities across the country. The partnership will include outdoor family events and programs that encourage habitat conservation.

UPS is one of a select group of companies recognized by the White House for its summer jobs commitment. The Summer Jobs Plus program is a $1.5 billion call to action for businesses, nonprofits, and government to create jobs for low-income youth, ages 16 to 24, this summer. UPS will offer 1,500 employment opportunities to youth, which include employment benefits and an assistance program that pays up to $3,000 a year for educational benefits.
