A few words from Laemmle Theatres’ partners, TreePeople!
TreePeople is delighted to announce our partnership with Laemmle Theatres, one of Los Angeles’ most iconic independent cinema groups. As an organization committed to protecting and expanding our local ecosystems, we are grateful for their support and shared passion for environmental sustainability.
At TreePeople, we believe trees are not just a source of beauty but are also vital to the health and well-being of our communities. Trees provide shade, improve air quality, absorb carbon, and prevent erosion.
As you may know, TreePeople has a long and storied history. We were founded in 1973 by a concerned teenager who saw the need to address the environmental challenges facing Los Angeles. Since then, we’ve planted over three million trees, and engaged over three million volunteers. Our work has been recognized locally and nationally, and we’re proud to be part of the movement to create a more sustainable future.
TreePeople has made significant strides in supporting communities that suffer from pollution exposure and extreme heat, creating change to improve both environmental and human health. These impacts are further explored through our programming in wildfire restoration and prevention, school greening, eco-tours, residential tree distributions, community engagement, tribal relations, and a focus on our “bright spots”; areas across Southern California that are the most affected by extreme heat, pollution, seasonal flooding, and low tree canopy cover.
However, our work is far from done. The climate crisis is becoming increasingly urgent, and the need to protect and expand our urban forest is more important than ever. That’s why we would like to invite you to join our monthly giving program, The Canopy. By joining The Canopy, you will help us continue our critical work of building a greener, more resilient, and sustainable Southern California.
The Canopy is an excellent way to support TreePeople because it allows us to plan for the future with confidence. Your ongoing support will enable us to take on ambitious projects, such as planting new trees, restoring watersheds, and maintaining community green spaces.
We are so grateful for this opportunity to tell you more about our work, and we hope that you will join our movement! Your contributions, no matter how small, will help us continue our work and build a better future for generations to come.
Trees need People. People need Trees.
