January's Volunteer Focus: Neighborhood Canvassing and Outreach
Join us for one of our scheduled canvassing events, or Help us spread the word about our program on your own. Some other ways you can help us spread the word include:
Sharing the Application
Please pass along the word to friends, family, and neighbors. Let them know that they can find more information and the online applications at: www.TheParkPeople.org. Paper applications are also available from our office. Word of mouth is one of Denver Digs Trees' most effective means of outreach!
Dropping Applications in Neighborhood Hot Spots You know your neighborhood's hot spots and gathering places better than we do. Leave small stacks of tree applications at coffee shops, gardening stores, and other locations where folks might see and take them.
Speaking at Neighborhood Meetings Give a presentation about the benefits of trees and our tree program at your neighborhood association's meeting or at the meeting of another group with which you're involved.
Encouraging your Neighborhood Paper to Run a Story about Denver Digs and the spring trees. We can provide a press release or a brief blurb and are happy to field reporters' calls.
Hosting a party! You've got the wine and the cheese, now add the trees! While getting to know your neighbors, why not advertise for trees at your event! Set out tree applications for folks to take. Show off a tree you've gotten through Denver Digs. We can even send a representative to give a brief spiel about this year's trees and how folks can apply, or you can do this yourself. This is a fun, no-pressure, social way to get more trees in your neighborhood!
Reaching Out to Rental Properties and Business Owners Know of a rental property or business that could use some trees? Make contact with the property managers! These folks may manage numerous properties, presenting a great opportunity to impact many areas in the city.
