Your sponsorship helps fund JBRPC public events, tools and equipment, free public programs, increased recreational amenities, and community engagement efforts throughout the neighborhoods we serve.

We look forward to working with your team!

JBRPC’s corporate volunteer opportunities give our employees a chance to build teamwork and give back meaningfully in the communities where we live and work, all while enjoying the incredible parkland throughout Jamaica Bay.

United By Blue partnered with the Conservancy on coastline cleanup projects that removed thousands of pounds of trash from Jamaica Bay waterways. The JBRPC team is knowledgeable and engaging, and this allows volunteers to have a positive and rewarding experience while giving back to their local natural areas. Through this partnership, we not only helped the Conservancy achieve its mission of caring for public parkland, but it also allowed us as a company to engage new communities and fulfill our mission of removing a pound of trash from our waterways for every product we sell.”
