Tuesday, September 25th, three members of the Tuscaloosa office went across town to help Tuscaloosa County’s Parks and Recreation Authority (PARA) staff in spreading mulch around trees in Rosedale Park.
As a part of Nascar’s Green Program 60 trees were donated to Tuscaloosa Parks. The program donates 10 trees for each green flag that drops during a race; six green flags were shown during the spring race at Talladega Superspeedway.
It was a great day to be outside in the community lending a hand to another organization that is eager to rebuild Tuscaloosa. ”We are glad to be a part in the rebuilding process in Tuscaloosa. These aren’t just trees, they are hope. Hope that this community will come back and bring people together again despite tragedy.” remarked Debby Faught, Media and Public Relations Coordinator for United Saints.
Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox was there along with two city counselmen, Gary Minor, the director of PARA, and two representatives from Talladega Superspeedway.
Rosedale Park is located on 3000 Greensboro Ave. and was right in the path of the April 27th, 2011 tornado. These trees are only the beginning for this park, plans for a playground and splash park to be built are underway.
