Hendrick Boards, an eco-friendly skateboard and apparel company, made its TV debut this week on FOX’s hit show, Glee. The company’s products were featured in the “Senior Skip Day” episode that premiered April 10.
The Anaheim-based company provided five skateboards, five long boards and an array of apparel, including its best-selling Square It tee, for the cast to use and wear throughout the episode.
Glee chose to feature Hendrick Boards due largely to the company’s charitable mission to give back to local animal shelters, pet rescues and sanctuaries across the nation. With every purchase, the company donates 20 percent of the total price back to the customer’s local animal charities, based on their shipping address.
Providing the products for Glee helped Hendrick Boards donate $150 to charities based on the skateboards and long boards alone.
“We are thrilled and honored that Glee selected Hendrick Boards to include our products in their spring premiere,” said David Hendrickson, founder and CEO of Hendrick Boards. “By showcasing our skateboards and apparel, Glee has only strengthened our vision to see a world where every animal has a loving, caring and respectful environment through the amazing work being done by local animal shelters and rescues.”
