Plant a Tree on National Make a Difference Day! Saturday, October 27, 2019
Thanks to the passion of millions, National Make a Difference Day is the nation’s largest day of volunteering. In collaboration with Points of Light and the generosity of Newman’s Own, National Make a Difference Day rallies millions of people in a single day to help change the nation.
Locally, in the fall of 2014, The Taking Root Steering Committee had an idea to have community volunteer tree plantings on National Make a Difference Day. Tree planting on this day would increase regional awareness of the Taking Root reforestation efforts and encourage volunteer commitment to the concept of reforestation. The Make a
Difference Day (MaDD) Team was created on that day and is now recruiting people and facilitating community volunteer tree plantings throughout the eight county Taking Root region (Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren Counties in Ohio; Boone, Kenton and Campbell Counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana).
Since 2014, the MaDD Team has continued its efforts to facilitate community tree plantings. To date, the MaDD Team has assisted more than 400 volunteers planting more than 2000 trees in the eight counties of the Taking Root region.
Our multi-year partners include the cities of Newport and Covington in Kentucky, and the cities of Wyoming, Lockland, Woodlawn in Ohio. Last year environmental non-profits joined in: Cincinnati Nature Center, Millcreek Groundworks, Western Wildlife Corridor and Little Miami Inc. all held Make a Difference Day tree plantings.
