TD Canada Trust’s Friends of the Environment Foundation Presents City with Cheque for $15,000
Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens accepted a cheque for $15,000 dollars, on behalf of the City, from TD Canada Trust’s ‘Friends of the Environment Foundation’ (FEF) today.
The money will be used to plant a small arboretum styled cropping of new trees at Ambassador Park on Windsor’s riverfront.
TD Canada Trust District Vice President Eric Griggs called the project “a perfect fit” for FEF’s on-going efforts to protect the environment and green communities across Canada.
“We’re proud to be helping fund an important environmental project”, said VP Griggs, “and we’re also proud to be making it happen with the City of Windsor”.
10 trees will be planted at Ambassador Park on the north side of Riverside drive near the eastern entrance to the Sculpture Gardens. Signage will denote the species of trees and more, adding an educational element to the environmental effort.
“This is another great community partnership being forged”, said Mayor Dilkens. “I want to thank TD Canada Trust and the Friends of the Environment Foundation for their support in helping Windsor become more environmentally friendly, healthy and attractive.
The tree dedication will be planned for a date in July.
