On Monday, UPS presented Reed Bingham with an electric truck they can use for transportation and maintenance. The donation came as part of UPS's Neighbor to Neighbor Program.
UPS employee Donna Tillman, along with her daughter, volunteered more than 1,000 hours at Reed Bingham--enough to qualify the park for a grant. The electric truck will help reduce the park's fuel expenses.
"Because of the hours we put in, the volunteer work, and the great job that Chet and his staff do here, I nominated them for one of the 'Go Green' awards. We received $14,900 to get the electric truck for the park. It was very exciting."
UPS also provided Reed Bingham with an electric three-wheeler to help with gas-free transportation.
