Representatives from the Mayor’s Office, Taj Gibson Foundation, Creative Sports Concepts, Environmental Surface Solutions, NYPAL, and Ingersoll Cornerstone Community Center, Join Together to Create a Safe and Mindful Ice-Skating Event to Bring Happiness Back to the Kids of the Brooklyn Community

Brooklyn, New York (January 29, 2021) – The Taj Gibson Foundation, founded by well-known and loved NBA power forward Taj Gibson, is hosting the 2nd annual Fort Green on Ice event at Ingersoll Houses in Brooklyn. The event brings a 5,000 square foot ice skating rink in front of Ingersoll Houses, creating an opportunity for kids and families in the Brooklyn community to have fun and feel a sense of normalcy in a COVID-safe environment. Gibson, who grew up in Ingersoll Houses, says the event was made possible by Environmental Surface Solutions, known as the “Gold Standard of Clean™”.

ESS is donating its onsite electrostatic application to the event – which eradicates harmful airborne and surface pathogens (including COVID-19) from the air. This will ensure that all surfaces at the event are clean and COVID-free. ESS will also spray equipment to carefully clean each pair of ice skates before use and will regularly clean the seating around the rink. To encourage social distancing, no more than ten people will be allowed on the rink at any given time. Event organizers will also distribute facemasks and other PPE to those in attendance who need them.

ESS is an FDA-approved food surface safe, proven COVID-19 eliminator included within the EPA’s List N and are proud sponsors of this weekend’s event, increasing COVID-safety for kids and families.

Additionally, representatives from the New York City Mayor’s office, NYPD, Ingersoll Cornerstone Community Center and more will all be there to help make this free event enjoyable and memorable for kids!
