BNI Foundation Grant Impacts Clubs Across America

Submitted by Beth Misner, BNI Foundation Co-Founder and President


The BNI Foundation donated a $1,000 Givers Gain Grant to the Vacaville, California Boys and Girls Club so they could purchase three Tower Gardens by Juice Plus. The Tower Gardens taught the kids about growing organic vegetables, harvesting vegetables, and preparing meals from fresh ingredients.

On July 27, I visited the Boys and Girls Club along with Brian Bentzen, BNI Foundation Social Media Coordinator, to meet the kids and take part in salsa preparation and bottling production using ingredients from the Tower Gardens. The salsa will now be sold as a fundraiser for the club.

After Juice Plus learned of the success the club has had with the Tower Gardens, they started a company-wide campaign to donate a smaller Tower Garden to each Boys and Girls Club of America. This is Givers Gain in action again, as even Juice Plus participates in our Business Voices initiative, creating a conduit between business and education.
