Throw Back Thursday: Tree Giveaway

Our annual Tree Giveaway is just around the corner – October 25th to be exact! Every year for the past 16 years, KDB has given away hundreds of trees to residents of the City of Denton.

We thought it might be fun to look back at past giveaways, and isn’t it convenient that our intern, Shannon, stumbled across some old photos?! Let’s throw back to the year 2005. Can you believe that was almost 10 years ago?

Here we have a group of wonderful volunteers! With such a small staff (three full-timers + our awesome intern) we rely on volunteers to make sure programs like Tree Giveaway run smoothly!
