In connection with our biennial Client Appreciation event in September, River City Bank selects one organization as the focus for our charitable fundraising, the Charity of Choice. The Charity of Choice receives a $5,000 donation from the Bank plus proceeds raised by RCB employees through fundraising activities including Jeans Day and bake sales. This year, we are pleased to announce the Sacramento Tree Foundation is the Bank’s Charity of Choice. The Sacramento Tree Foundation is a community benefit organization working to build healthy, livable communities in the Sacramento region by growing the best urban forest in the nation.
Recently, Sacramento Tree Foundation’s Executive Director, Ray Tretheway, stopped by RCB’s Corporate office to give a brief presentation on the foundation and the impact they have on our community. He discussed the organization’s current plans to plant and steward 5 million new trees region-wide. Of which, one million trees are targeted for under-resourced, low tree canopy neighborhoods. For nearly 40 years, the Sacramento Tree Foundation has witnessed and fostered what Tretheway has called, “a community-wide renaissance on how residents see and value trees.” It’s continuing work will be felt for generations to come.
