Tree Planting Patch

MakingFriend Patch ProgramThis 2″ iron-on¬†embroidered patch is part of our patch program.

Planting a tree in your community is something your girls will remember for years.You can do a memorial tree planting, a commemorative tree planting, park tree planting, community entrance planting or any other idea you girls might have. The Arbor Day Foundation has plenty of information to help. See their website to get started: arborday.org/takeaction/volunteer/organize.cfm
