The Deer Park Middle community planted the trees in celebration of Arbor Day which in South Carolina is on the first Friday in December - on December 4th this year. The red maple trees will be a beautiful addition to the campus.
Additionally, this grant includes "The Great American Cleanup," which is the nation's largest organized annual cleanup, beautification, and community improvement program. This event is held annually during the months of March, April, and May. "The Great American Cleanup" is a platform for a wide range of initiatives embraced by Keep American Beautiful's mission, such as litter prevention education, recycling drives, graffiti removal, and beautification, and community projects. Deer Park Middle will be participating in Spring 2021.
