Credit Union to Distribute Free Red Maple Tree Saplings in Honor of Earth Day
TAMPA, FL, (April 7, 2014) Grow Financial, one of the leading Credit Unions in the nation, announces their Earth Day celebration in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Times titled “Let’s Grow Together”.
On Monday and Tuesday, April 21 and 22, in honor of Earth Day, Grow Financial will be giving away free Red Maple Tree saplings to anyone who visits any of the Tampa Bay area’s 21 branches. The trees will be limited to five per household, and people will be instructed to plant the trees in their own yards or contact the local organization, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, for locations on where to plant the trees.
Grow Financial and the Tampa Bay Times are encouraging the community to plant the trees as it a great way to contribute to saving our environment. It helps to lower greenhouse gas emissions and the trees provide a habitat for a variety of other plants and animals.
“One of our guiding principles as an organization is to Grow the Greater Good. We look for opportunities to be socially responsible and give back to the communities we live and work in so this type of campaign which supports a healthy environment is the perfect tie in for our Credit Union, ” said Bob Fisher, President and CEO. “We are excited to participate in this campaign for the second year in a row and look forward to making this year’s celebration even better than last year”, Fisher said.
