April is Paper for Pines Month (no more Pennies)
April 3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Penny Pines Program was initiated in California in 1941. It started small, under the sponsorship of the San Francisco Sportswomen’s Association in 1941. To date, 59 years later, those pennies have amounted to well over 1 million dollars, and the program is a statewide conservation project supported by numerous individuals and organizations. Over the years, individuals, community organizations, and groups of all sizes have participating in the Penny Pines Program. Garden clubs, Women’s Clubs, youth groups, and schools have all cooperated to help keep California’s forests green and growing. A minimum donation of $68.00 from the Club may be made to a specific National Forest.
Initially, members contributed loose coins as their contribution. To make donations easier to handle, we request paper money donations.
