Gifford Mass Tree Planting 2014
Volunteers fan out in the central part of Gifford to help dig and plant about 235 trees as part of a rebuilding effort in areas heavily affected by last fall's tornado. Areas outside of Gifford were helped, too, as Champaign County Farm Bureau organized the event. Champaign, Champaign West, Rantoul and Piatt County Rotary Clubs, also helped with coordinating efforts on Saturday, April 5, 2014. St. Paul's Lutheran Church also fed volunteers while assigning overflow projects to tackle in Gifford.
