GIFT continued its celebration of Arbor Week presenting programs and potting saplings with Third Grade students at Burroughs-Molette Elementary School and Oglethorpe Point Elementary School. GIFT also planted a live oak tree at Oglethorpe Point Elementary School, donated by our first corporate member, Webster Tile and Bath, owned by David Webster.

In addition to GIFT, donations for the project were provided by Georgia Power, Asplundh Tree Expert CO. and Resa Dollar of Southeast Nursery.
