Tuesday, August 12, 2014 marks the 4th Annual Erie Gives Day. Last year LEAF raised $3,462.90 thanks to our supporters! How were those funds used? Over 200 5th grade students learned about trees and the environment on Arbor Day. Tuesday Drop-In nature programs for younger children were held for 7 weeks in the summer. Concerts and theater performances were offered on Thursday evenings. While free to the participants, there are costs that LEAF absorbs ranging from artist fees to craft supplies to electricity.
LEAF will be particpating again this year. Your donation of a minimum of $25 made on August 12th between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. in support of LEAF will earn us part of a pro-rated match. Your contributions are greatly appeciated and will benefit both the arboretum and the community as a whole! Please click this link for more information. http://www.eriegives.org/about-erie-gives
