Green industry contractors and suppliers rally with SiteOne and build Champions Place
SiteOne Landscape Supply, alongside customers and suppliers, invested time, talent and materials at Champions Place to create a special outdoor living space for its residents. Champions Place is made possible by Champions Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving physically challenged young adults who have aged out of high school programs. It is committed to significantly improving the lives of young adults with physical disabilities, enabling them to reach their full potential as self-reliant, productive and fulfilled citizens in their local community. Watch the outdoor transformation and hear from Champions Place residents on how meaningful this project was on SiteOne’s YouTube channel.
