55 Trees Planted in East Lansing
The Credit Union partnered again this year with the Michigan Arbor Day Alliance (MADA) and City of East Lansing to plant 55 trees in Harrison Meadows Park, located in East Lansing.
Our employees were excited to have the opportunity to help plant the trees within the park, and more than 20 staff members signed up to help on May 15. Volunteers were asked to do a variety of different tasks from planting trees and shrubs to helping spread mulch.
“I am proud to be a part of an organization that recognizes the importance of job enrichment by offering volunteering opportunities. I really felt like I was making a positive impact on the community in which I live and work,” said MSUFCU employee, Liz.
MSUFCU donated $2,000 to MADA for this project, which covered the purchases of items for the tree planting such as trees and mulch. Over the past several years, MSUFCU and MADA have planted 535 trees in East Lansing, helping to replace trees due to the effects of emerald ash borer beetles.
“At MSUFCU, we take pride in giving back to our local community and we’re happy to contribute toward the planting of new trees in Mid-Michigan. Our continued partnership with MADA is one way MSUFCU strives to be an environmentally responsible organization,” commented, MSUFCU’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Patrick McPharlin.
