We had some astounding volunteers turn out for this day of service. With three tree plantings totaling 181 trees and three litter clean ups, it was moving to experience everyone's dedication to the Durham community.
Volunteers from Duke University, Rotary Club, RDU Airport TSA, NC School of Science and Math, and the Emily K Center planted an impressive 50 trees in Northbrook, 65 trees in Old North Durham and 66 trees in the Cleveland Holloway neighborhoods. We are so grateful for this community of people who worked hard on a chilly day to make a difference by planting trees. These trees will grow to help shade the streets, provide clean air and water, and keep nature close to us.
Volunteers from Duke Roundtable and several neighborhoods also came out to help clean our streets! Altogether over 100 volunteers collected 215 bags of trash, recyclables and plenty of bulky items like tires, lumber, paint buckets, and a gas can!
Thank you for taking time out of your day and dedicating it not just to service, but to improving our community in Durham.
