Our First Sunday collection recipient for March will be Trees Forever. For decades, Trees Forever has helped thousands of community volunteers, civic leaders, government officials, and landowners to plant and care for trees, shrubs, native grasses, and plants. Trees Forever seeks to educate volunteers and communities on the importance of trees and natural areas to maintain and regenerate our soil and water. They accomplish this through special events, conferences, workshops, and structured volunteer training. First Sunday donations will go toward a program called Growing Futures, which employs teams of teenagers to help grow our tree canopy while learning about the world around them and the potential within themselves. For more information, please visit the group’s website: https://treesforever.org/

Checks can be written either to “Trees Forever” (mention DMIEC in the memo line) or to “DMIEC” with “First Sunday” in the memo line.
