Trees Matter Shade Tree Events
Trees Matter will be facilitating the SRP Shade Tree Distribution Event in Tempe on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Learn more about this energy efficiency program here .
REQUIRED: Masks, gloves, and signing our Covid-19 symptom waiver for all volunteers.
We will be following strict Covid guidelines for the safety of our community, and therefore our regular opportunities will look a bit different than usual this Spring. Tree distribution events will be drive-thru style, to be as contactless as possible when picking up trees.
Ariel, our Volunteer & Outreach Manager, will discuss the new event set up in detail, well before event day, so we're all prepared!
As always, these events are volunteer-powered! We couldn't do it without our incredible volunteers!
Trees Matter is in need of several volunteers to help with distributing about 1,000 desert-adapted shade trees to SRP participants. Over the course of the summer months, SRP participants attended virtual tree care workshops, and selected 2 shade trees that they would receive once the weather was more suitable for planting. They will arrive in the drive thru we set up to pick-up their trees between 8am-1:00pm. We need lots of help to ensure the day runs smoothly!
You can read about each of the roles in the sign-up below, and sign up directly for whichever sounds like the best fit for you. Roles range from customer service to more physically active roles!
The event will take place at:
Mesa Community College, 1833 W Southern Ave, Mesa, AZ 85202
Our Volunteer Manager will send out an email of additional details, well before the event.
Note: All volunteers under age 18 will need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian. We will have blank copies of the waiver on site, or you can download the youth waiver here and bring it with you. Date:
