Groundwork Richmond works with local youth to increase the tree canopy in low-income neighborhoods affected by crime, poverty and pollution. The youth give back to their community by planting trees, cleaning up brownfields and teaching neighbors about the benefits of trees. Meanwhile, our youth gain leadership and practical skills and are on a career and/or college path to the environmental sciences.
This year "Greening Richmond Together" will focus on giving our youth the opportunity to travel and experience National Parks across the U.S. There they will help restore the natural environment and get to enjoy some of the most beautiful places in the world. Whether you give a lot or give a little, your support will help give these youth opportunities they wouldn't otherwise have. Become part of a community of individuals working to improve the live of others. When you donate to "Greening Richmond Together", you:
- Give youth of all backgrounds the chance to visit the most beautiful places in the nation.
- Support community service work locally AND outside of your community.
- Connect local youth to the outdoors.
- Support our National Parks.
- Support a healthy environment
