With the event scheduled for later in the fall season than in year’s past, Operation Cool Shade experienced a “breezy” pickup event on Saturday, November 18. MEC would like to thank the generosity of our community’s many volunteers who support the event, which begins with the unloading of trees from delivery trucks the Friday before – to the distribution and loading into member’s vehicles on Saturday morning.
This year, MEC would like to especially thank the Mohave High School Interact Club for their valued participation both days. On tree pickup day, some 80 volunteers and MEC employee volunteers work together to distribute the trees with efficiency in the least amount of time.
MEC truly appreciates the efforts of all of our volunteers!!
