ENDICOTT (WBNG) — Weis Markets made a generous donation to a Union-Endicott Elementary school’s garden club.
Weis donated $1,000 to the George F. Johnson garden club.
Items included tools, gloves, and various plants.
It’s a student run garden, the garden club manager say it’s a big part of teaching children.
“Its important to get children outdoors, this is such a technology age where we spend most of our time on screens and being sedative this gets you out moving and digging, and playing with the dirt and learning whats in the dirt. Worms, bugs whatever,” said Garden Club Manager Brenda Mariano.
School officials say they are thankful to Weis for the donation.
