CoronaCares Comes to Aid of Charles River Conservancy Project
CORONA, Calif. (May 19, 2010) — As a leading manufacturer of professional and consumer tools, Corona Clipper has a longstanding commitment to community improvement throughout the United States and abroad through its CoronaCares Program. This month, Corona demonstrated this commitment by donating a variety of garden and landscaping tools including shovels, pruners, loppers and rakes to the Charles River Conservancy (CRC) in Cambridge, MA. Each year, the Conservancy brings out over 2,500 volunteers to perform vital maintenance work and build permanent improvements in the Parklands. Corona’s tool donation comes in time for the Conservatory’s upcoming 10th anniversary celebration luncheon when more than 300 business, government and community leaders will come together on June 15, 2010 to support the organization’s goal of improving our living environment.
“Corona is proud to sponsor events such as the CRC volunteer projects as part of our CoronaCares Program.” said Jim Wolf, vice president of marketing at Corona Clipper. “We have a rich history, dating back to the 1920’s with our founding in the orange groves of southern California, of providing quality tools to enrich the environment and people’s lives. We feel it is our obligation as a company to assist in projects that value longevity and a rich heritage similar to our tradition.”
“CRC strives to give its volunteers the best equipment on the market to make their work easier and more efficient.” said John Broderick, Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, at the Conservancy. “Thanks to our partnership with Corona Clipper and their generous donation of professional quality tools, our volunteers are able to help keep up with all the hard work in the parklands, an area that is enjoyed by its many visitors throughout the year.”

About the Charles River Conservancy
The Charles River Conservancy promotes the active and innovative use of the 400 acres of urban public parklands along the Charles River from Boston Harbor to the Watertown Dam. The Conservancy and its partners—the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and many other community groups—organize volunteers to beautify the Parklands and preserve the landscape, advocate for land uses that advance healthy living, public access, and physical parkland improvements, and build awareness about the Charles River. Each year the Conservancy brings together thousands of volunteers to improve and maintain the parklands through activities such as painting benches, planting daffodils, trimming invasives and pruning trees.
