All through April, volunteers met at Fremont’s Sabercat trail to plant around 50 trees, each tree commemorating a lost community member from COVID-19. This COVID-19 memorial tree planting event could not have taken place without the sheer hard work of our members, the kindness of our volunteers, to and the generosity of our amazing donors--Atlassain, Cole Hardware, Harbor Freight, 4UCam. Both the Fremont mayor, Lily Mei, and the chair of the city’s planning commission, Benjamin Yee, volunteered alongside and helped us plant.
But our Life for a Life tree planting initiative is not over yet! We aim to not only create a visible change in our community, but to also to remember all of the 750 lives lost due to COVID-19 in Alameda County. We deeply encourage everyone to join us on our mission.
