Thrive.,” said Judson McNeil, president of The Toro Foundation. “The grant program is directed at conserving and restoring our outdoor environments to ensure healthier, more vibrant and sustainable communities where our employees live and work.”

  • Beatrice, Neb;
  • Bloomington, Minn.;
  • El Paso, Texas;
