One of TEF’s great programs is our yearly tree project. In 2015, TEF used funds from a generous Cargill donation to provide 17 Tooele County School District schools with 37 trees. Cory Dobson, Custodial Services Supervisor for TCSD was instrumental in the completion of this project and sent the following note to TEF:
I would like to personally thank the Tooele Education Foundation and Cargill for the wonderful tree donation to Tooele County School District. Many schools used this as an educational opportunity and had students assist in the planting. I look forward to doing this again in the future. This is an excellent project and I believe learning is enhanced when we have beautiful and welcoming campuses. Thanks for all your help with this tree planting project.
TEF is thrilled to be a part of enhancing learning through the creation of beautiful campuses! We look forward to adding many more trees to our school grounds for students, teachers, and the community to enjoy for many, many years.
