Getting Street Trees where they are needed the most.

Saturday, June 8, 2013

Door to Door Day

The Street Tree project was helped today by students from nearby St. Ann's Catholic Elementary school who went door to door to sign people up for street trees. Alex Ramirez of the OPIRG Board of Directors was there assisting students with the project on behalf of his OPIRG McMaster working group Hamilton Student Community Initiative.
After a few mentoring opportunities with our Project Leader Johnny, the students successfully managed to get several new people signed up for trees on Burton Street.



Johnny also provided the volunteers with snacks, sandwiches and cold drinks. In a short time we had 10 more trees to add to the dozens already requested, and we still have more streets to attend to!

Thank you to Alex and the team from St. Ann's!

If you are interested in volunteering with this project, please contact randy.opirg@gmail.com or 905-525-9140 ext. 26026.
