Highland Park lost a significant number of trees from Hurricane Sandy—on April 20, we need your help to plant 2,400 trees as part of our rebuilding efforts. To kick off our rebuilding efforts, JetBlue is partnering with New York Restoration Project (NYRP) to do “One Thing That’s Green” and we invite you to join us on Saturday, April 20 to help rebuild Highland Park in Queens!

We invite you to bring your friends and family out for an exciting day of outdoor events that encourage active living. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and all volunteers will receive a t-shirt. There will be activities for participants of all ages throughout the day, so don’t miss out on the fun!

All volunteers will be entered into the one thing that's green volunteer sweepstakes and four weekly winners will each receive one pair of JetBlue travel certificates.

Registration is required.
