Over 75 chapter, staff, student and parent volunteers came together on April 9, 2016 for a Spring Green Apple Day of Service event at St. Rita's School in San Diego, CA.
Services performed, during this event co-sponsorted by Kitchell, included building a school learning garden, planting five shade trees and privacy hedges, and fence repairs. Additional sponsors included Casper Company, Davis Consulting, Tree San Diego, Urban Corps, RCP Block & Brick, Jimbo's Naturally and Mindswing Consulting.
Trees for this event were donated by Tree San Diego and made possible through funding provided by the California Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund through the CALFIRE Urban and Community Program.
