AEF looking for a few Vechicle Donations for Projects

dcar101rv

Everything helps and with up coming tree planting projects The American Evergreen Foundation (AEF) is reaching out looking for a donation of a trailer, RV, camper to aid for on site projects. AEF Conservation through Participation programs from time to time seek out equipment, vehicles, etc., to aid projects. Anytime we receive a vehicle donation it’s a big step forward for AEF who is a 100% volunteer staff and crew. We utilize all we can get and in this case we need to establish a mobile project unit, as well as seeking out a few support vehicles.

We make all vehicle donations as simple as possible and cover the cost of a independent appraiser so the donor has all documentation for a tax deduction.

Why Volunteer?

There are many benefits to volunteering in the community! Here are just a few: 

Build Your Skills and Your Resume
Community work is a great way to build your resume and your skills. When you volunteer, you’ll have the guidance of employees who are specialists in their fields.

Develop a Career Network
Networking is an incredibly important part of searching for jobs and building careers. Community involvement is one of the best ways to make connections and foster relationships that do just that. Not only will you build a network, many students who volunteer at an organization are offered permanent positions after graduation.

Enhance Your Education
One of the best ways to learn is through experience. What better way to gain experience than to work at an organization hand-picked to fit your needs and interests? Many educational experiences can’t be taught in a classroom.

Create Positive Change in Your Community
Nonprofit organizations are the driving force behind social change. Everything from local, grassroots activism to international politics requires the efforts of nonprofit organizations. And nonprofits can’t function without the energy and input of volunteers like you.

Be a Part of Your Community
Community involvement is one of the best ways to feel connected to your community. By the simple gesture of offering your skills and enthusiasm, you will positively impact other lives, as well as your own.

Now get out there a make a difference
Check the internet for a local group that needs your knowledge, and people power for important projects. Make it a point to at the least volunteer one time a year or more.

Wind Energy in California

The American Evergreen Foundation is a proud supporter of wind energy and working hard to help get the word out. Wind energy plays an integral role in California’s electricity portfolio. In 2007, turbines in wind farms generated 6,802 gigawatt-hours of electricity – about 2.3 percent of the state’s gross system power. Additionally, hundreds of homes and farms are using smaller wind turbines to produce electricity.
