Procter & Gamble's Bounty(R) brand is teaming up with Mary J. Blige, Russell Simmons and dozens of local New York City-area volunteers from the HandsOn Network and Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation to "Make a Clean Difference" at New York City's PS 165 Elementary School. Bounty's "Make a Clean Difference" program will unite more than 1,000 volunteers to transform the learning environments of 30 public schools in 10 cities across the country.
Mary J. Blige and Russell Simmons, a co-founder of Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, led the team of community volunteers in tackling everything from cleaning the cafeteria and auditorium to brightening up school grounds with a fresh coat of paint. Intended to inspire continued creativity in classroom, Rush's teaching artist volunteers will also create a special mural at the school.
The program, announced by Gabrielle Union in Washington, D.C. on April 20, encourages local community volunteers to join Bounty in its commitment to transform the learning environments of schools across the country by getting them "Bounty clean."
