BC Tree Planters Plant for World Hunger Day

On World Hunger Day, thousands of BC tree planters planted trees to raise funds for food banks around the province.

While planters planted, employers matched donations of workers with donations.

The donations are from a sector appreciative of the support it has received from rural community leaders and suppliers.

All funds raised were donated to assist families and individuals dealing with financial uncertainties due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 4500 tree planters are thankful to have work and were eager to share that good fortune with others in need of help.
