Bounty continues Make a Clean Difference program in L.A.
CINCINNATI Bounty’s Make a Clean Difference program made a stop at a Los Angeles elementary school, with the help of husband-and-wife actor duo Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth, along with dozens of local Los Angeles-area volunteers from HandsOn Network and Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation.
The Make a Clean Difference program helps make schools “Bounty clean,” from cleaning cafeterias to planting around front entrances in public schools across the country, by uniting more than 1,000 volunteers to transform the learning environments of 30 public schools in 10 cities across the country. This week, Bounty visited Los Angeles’ Kingsley Elementary School.
“Jennie and I are thrilled to be here in Los Angeles to join Bounty and all of the volunteers who have given their time today to truly make a difference in the lives of these young students,” Facinelli said. “As parents of three daughters, we understand the importance of inspiring children in the classroom, and we are happy to be part of a program committed to improving their learning potential.”
Aside from “Twilight”-saga star Facinelli and “90210’s” Garth, several other celebrities have participated in the project, including singer Mary J. Blige and actress Gabrielle Union, who announced the program’s launch in April.
