PHOENIX, Ariz. -- Water efficiency and sustainability, education, and safety were the focus of Ewing’s second annual PRIDE Project, a way the company gives back to the community.

On April 15, more than 350 Ewing Irrigation employees and partners converged at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic School in Dallas to renovate the complete campus irrigation system and build a football field, community garden and outdoor entertainment area.

Ewing selected the school as this year’s recipient because it didn’t have the resources to construct a safe field for the students to play on.

“As part of our community outreach efforts, we select a project in a community with a need for what we can provide,” said Warren Gorowitz, Ewing’s Vice President of Sustainability. “St. Philip showed an enthusiasm for our interest in the project from the beginning, and everyone from the school we came into contact with had a great appreciation for the things we were doing."
