Raise your hand if you used one of our new water fill stations this summer!
Over the last few months, we have been in the process of installing 10 new drinking fountains at a number of park locations around Grand Forks, all thanks to funding from Hydro Flask’s Parks For All grant. Supporting the elimination of single use plastics and public places, these water filling stations allow our community to #RefillForGood with access to cold, clean, refreshing water while enjoying the outdoors. We are honored to be a 2023 grant recipient and want to send a special shout out to Hydro Flask for their support. Thank you, Hydro Flask! #ParksForAll #HeyLetsGo
The Parks for All giving program has reached a lifetime contribution of over $3 million in pursuit to build happier, healthier, and more equitable outdoor futures for all. You can check out all the other national and international grant recipients to see how Hydro Flask through Parks For All is working hard to make a positive impact here >> www.hydroflask.com/parks-for-all ...
