Giving Back To Our Community

Volunteering & Fundraising is a Main Priority at Turfscape

giving backOur Giving Back Committee is dedicated to making a difference in the local area through charitable donations and volunteer efforts. What started in 2004 as a golf outing to benefit the Akron Children’s Hospital Burn Unit has evolved into the Turfscape Tree of Giving. Our endeavors range from charitable donations… to a full day of volunteering… to ongoing support of an organization! There are no boundaries when it comes to Turfscape Giving Back to the surrounding community as you can see in the sampling of our efforts below.
