News and Notes: U.S. Cellular joins Monarch for Earth Day at the M.A.G.I.C.A.L Garden in New Bern
On Tuesday, April 22, U.S. Cellular associates will join Monarch to plant flowers and landscape sections of the Monarch M.A.G.I.C.A.L (Monarch Ability Garden Integrating Community and Land) Garden in New Bern.
Associates from U.S. Cellular will volunteer their time to help “green up” local communities while celebrating Earth Day and promoting the importance of eco-friendly practices.
This is the third year employees from U.S. Cellular have volunteered with Monarch and it is the company’s second year at the M.A.G.I.C.A.L. garden in Craven County. In 2012, the group of dedicated employees assisted in planting the perimeter around the community garden.
“In honor of Earth Day, U.S. Cellular associates from the store in New Bern contributed their time and supplies to beautify our garden,” explained Eileen Bress, volunteer and community coordinator. “What an incredible difference a committed group of people makes. Thank you U.S. Cellular!”
Monarch’s M.A.G.I.C.A.L. garden was designed to provide a place for people to learn more about health, nutrition and sustainable gardening and is one of three community gardens Monarch has developed across the state.
