Community Service Opportunity
November 18, 2016 By:Hunter Watson
Here is a great opportunity to serve in our local community! Friends of Trees is an organization that plants trees throughout our community. Community planting events are a fun way for students to gain volunteer service hours, learn about the impact of planting trees, and give back to the community in a few short hours.
Their Native tree plantings events are coming up on Saturday, November 19th and Saturday December 3rd from 9:00am – 1:00pm.
Volunteers must arrive by 8:45am dressed appropriately for the weather and ready to have some fun! Friends of Trees provides breakfast snacks (doughnuts and other delicious baked goods), coffee, and hot chocolate along with work gloves, tools, and planting guidance. They ask that everyone under 15 years old is accompanied by an adult and that everyone under 18 years of age attending without a parent/guardian brings a signed youth waiver with them. To find out more about this community service opportunity, visit Mrs. Farris or check the College and Career Website.
