“Green Apple Day of Service” Make Schools Green and Healthy Around the World

Pratt & Whitney, Goodwin College, and the East Hartford Board of Education are partnering to enhance the front landscaping of Hockanum Elementary School as part of the Green Apple Day of Service, a global effort that gives parents, teachers, students, companies, and local organizations the opportunity to transform schools into healthy, safe, and productive learning environments through local service projects. On Saturday, September 28, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., more than 30 Pratt & Whitney volunteers will use Goodwin College’s landscaping services and plantings to help arrange shrubs, as well as water, spread mulch, and do exterior painting projects at Hockanum Elementary, 191 Main St., East Hartford. Pratt & Whitney and its parent company, United Technologies Corp. (UTC), are hosting 15 Green Apple Day of Service projects around the world, including two in China, one in Singapore, and the Hockanum project in East Hartford.
