Make a Difference Day:
Make a Difference Day is a national day of volunteerism. Taking Root holds an annual, region wide tree planting on this day. In past years as many as 32 groups of citizens consisting of 400 volunteers organized to plant 1,096 trees in local neighborhoods throughout the Greater Cincinnati Tri-state area.
In order to make the 2017 event even bigger we need to raise funds for:
Make a Difference Day Tree Sale: $3,000
Marketing materials (banners, signs, and brochures). $750
Arbor Day Seedling Giveaway:
In April Taking Root Distributes seedlings to school children in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Last year we bagged and packed 5,000 trees for distribution to local schools. We would like to make this an annual event! In order to do that we need to raise funds to purchase the trees and packing materials.
$3,000 will buy 5,000 tree seedlings and supplies needed to bag and distribute them. The trees will be distributed to school children throughout Hamilton County.
As Taking Root continues to grow and expand our programs operational funding becomes more important. Help us keep qualified staff and pay the bills so we can continue educating the public about the tree crisis and supporting reforestation initiatives region wide.
