Tree Planting School Tour is back!

Apr 17, 2017 | Posted in News & Events

Simple Acts of Green - Spring tree planting tour!

Our "Be Happi, Be Green" tree planting initiative is back in session for another school year! Last year, our "go green" initiative visited seven Erie area elementary schools planting over 60 new trees to help keep Erie beautiful! "Simple acts of Green" can go a long way. With that message in mind, Erie Federal Credit Union is once again teaming up with community partners Environment Erie, Gerlach's, and Happi Radio 92.7 FM for our "Happi Tree Planting" tour at Erie area elementary schools.

The goal of the "Go Green" initiative is to help set an environmentally sound example for the Erie youth teaching them the value of keeping our world "green". Students are involved with the actual planting of trees and can take pride in doing their part in keeping their world green and beautiful.
