033017 Tree Planting

William Smith, left, with 7-Eleven, and Lilly Ortiz with ALON Brand corporate office, join other volunteers who in cooperation with Keep Odessa Beautiful and the Odessa Parks and Recreation Department plant 11 trees Thursday morning at Salinas Park. Another 13 trees were planted at Woodson Park as part of the project to plant 30 trees at the parks. ALON 7-Eleven’s "Strive Fuel" program takes a portion of funds from fuel sales to donate to the local parks department to provide trees to help reduce carbon from automobile emissions.
