For the first time in its nearly 40 year history TreePeople volunteers will take to the phones to raise money to support the organization's work in growing a sustainable future for L.A. - one planted and cared for shade or fruit tree, water-conserving landscape, harvested gallon of rainwater, activated community member, and environmentally educated child at a time.
With more than 80 volunteers signed up, TreePeope’s goal is gain 2,000 supporters to help fund TreePeople’s core forestry and education programs this year, as well as save costs by eliminating the need to send paper mail to donors throughout the year -- saving trees!
TreePeople works for greener and healthier Los Angeles where community members join together to transform the region into a healthy urban ecosystem. This is happening in the streets, yards, schools, parks, and mountains throughout Los Angeles. The Phone-a-thon will make this work possible.
TreePeople is an environmental nonprofit that unites the power of trees, people and nature-based solutions to grow a sustainable future for Los Angeles. Simply put, our work is about helping nature heal our cities. Founded by a teenager in 1973, TreePeople has inspired the planting of more than 2 million trees in the greater Los Angeles area. Focusing particularly on disadvantaged areas and damaged natural ecosystems, TreePeople provides environmental education for nearly 30,000 students and involves more than 11,000 adult volunteers every year.
