SYNLawnⓇ Gives Back to Children from La Jungla Community
During Annual Conference in Cancún

DALTON, GA — SYNLawn®, the largest manufacturer and unrivaled innovator of artificial grass in North America, organized a corporate social responsibility experience for over 250 attendees during the annual conference located at Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort in Cancún. Prior to the conference, 20 children from local underprivileged families were selected as the recipients of a free day trip to the resort with their parents to enjoy all of the resort amenities, as well as donated supplies and new bicycles that were built by SYNLawn’s distributors during a team-building exercise.

“Corporate social responsibility is important to our company,” said George Neagle, executive vice president at SYNLawn. “While we wanted our distributors to enjoy the luxurious conference location to reward them for their hard work, we also wanted to give back. We invited local children and their families to the resort for a day to enjoy the fun activities, amenities and amazing food with us. As an added bonus, we brought gifts, including children’s bicycles, school supplies and other necessities. It was an incredibly rewarding day for our SYNLawn family.”

SYNLawn divided its conference attendees into 20 bike building teams. Each team had to correctly answer trivia questions about various topics such as sports, music, science and history to receive each of the five parts required to complete the bicycle. This team-building exercise encouraged distributors and vendors to work together to accomplish the task, while also providing an opportunity to give back. Once all of the bikes were built, the children from the La Jungla community joined the group to receive their gifts with big smiles and worked with team members to try out their new wheels.

The teams were comprised of participants from: SYNLawn CanadaSYNLawn Carolina/SoutheastSYNLawn of Central CaliforniaSYNLawn Chesapeake BaySYNLawn of ChicagoSYNLawn of ColoradoSYNLawn of Costa RicaSYNLawn GeorgiaSYNLawn IdahoSYNLawn IndianaSYNLawn Kansas CitySYNLawn MiamiSYNLawn MichiganSYNLawn of MinnesotaSYNLawn MontanaSYNLawn NebraskaSYNLawn New EnglandSYNLawn New JerseySYNLawn of New MexicoSYNLawn New YorkSYNLawn of North DakotaSYNLawn of Northeast OhioSYNLawn of Northern NevadaSYNLawn of Ohio ValleySYNLawn of OregonSYNLawn SacramentoSYNLawn San DiegoSYNLawn SeattleSYNLawn of South DakotaSYNLawn of Southern NevadaSYNLawn of TexasSYNLawn of Eastern Pennsylvania and SYNLawn of Western Pennsylvania.

“Building the bikes for the children was a heartwarming event,” said Tabitha Cromer, director of marketing at SYNLawn. “It was amazing to see how much our colleagues really cared about helping others, and to witness the joy and tears on their faces when they were able to meet the children in person and help them ride the bikes. It was an experience that none of us will ever forget. It brought our SYNLawn family closer together, and those involved said it was one of the best moments in their career.”
