Keep Durham Beautiful helps communities and children. We empower individuals and neighborhoods, providing them with tools and facilitating their own leadership to create cleaner, greener, healthier and safer spaces.

When neighbors asked us to help them plant trees earlier this year in East Durham, we relied on many contributors. Generous donors like you provided the funds necessary to purchase trees and materials, while veterans from "Stop Soldiers Suicide" and students from NC Central University joined together to dedicate trees to their heroes and to help plant the trees.

But the most significant moments involved curious children, teens and parents living in the neighborhood who came out to investigate. Ultimately the determination they brought played an important role in finishing the project!

The recently bulldozed land was compacted and difficult to dig. But the children living in this neighborhood wanted to see the lovely trees planted so badly that they pitched in to dig with more persistence than many of the volunteers from outside groups. They would not give up!

Planting the trees gave them a sense of accomplishment, pride in their community, and helped them bond with one another. They also learned that other people in Durham care about them and their neighborhood.

Your donation today makes more moments like this possible!

Donate now if you value:

  • A cleaner, greener and safer Durham
