Canon U.S.A.'s Clean Earth Crew Beautifies Lakeland County Park in Islandia
MELVILLE, N.Y., September 18, 2014 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, celebrated the Company's Clean Earth Crew Campaign at Lakeland County Park in Islandia, N.Y. Approximately 150 Canon employees, family members and friends volunteered to revamp the park, which is fully accessible and designed for the disabled and their families. Participants painted picnic tables, benches and boardwalk rails; placed mulch and woodchips around the entrance signs, gazebo and trees; washed the playground area and planted new flowers throughout the park.
"The annual Clean Earth Crew event is an opportunity for Canon employees to give back to the community by improving and protecting Long Island's natural environment," said Kotaro Fukushima, senior director and general manager, Corporate Communications Division, Canon U.S.A. "This year, it is truly special and gratifying to be able to assist Lakeland County Park, which is so strongly dedicated to enhancing the lives of disabled people."

Since the inception of the Clean Earth Crew in 1996, Canon U.S.A. employees have volunteered thousands of hours to help maintain and preserve some of Long Island's most beautiful parks and beaches.
