Volunteers plant to celebrate Martin Luther King Service Day, January 2020

Here’s a quick flashback from Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend. Unified Events managing director participated in a community-led tree planting. Hosted by the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park, LA Conservation Corps, City Plants and the LA Parks and Recreation Department. Definitely a feel good event. Volunteers planted 70 trees before lunch time! Check out details here.
