Environics' Charitable Outreach
Environics is dedicated to being a good global citizen through both local and international initiatives.
Our owner, Rachel, ran the 2015 and 2016 Boston Marathon as a member of Team Hole in the Wall. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in nearby Ashford, CT, best known as the camp founded by Paul Newman, serves seriously ill children from 7-15 years and gives them a chance to "raise a little hell." Through their summer camp as well as programs in hospitals and communities, they serve more than 20,000 children and their families each year.

Environics® designed and manufactured three photovoltaic systems utilized in the program. The purpose of the project, run by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, is to provide electricity, clean water and internet access, using the power of the sun, for their missions in Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur estimate over 2,000 people benefited from this program to date.Click here for more pictures and information (pptx)
