FEELIN’ THE LOVE
A Plus Cares launched their “Friendship Benches” in 2019 and is excited to have had the opportunity to partner with several elementary schools. This combines two of our passions: sustainability and giving back.
We mill and fabricate “Friendship Benches” from the trees we remove from the landscape and create an experience with the students around mental health awareness and anti-bullying. The kids paint encouraging notes and place handprints on the bench. The “Friendship Bench” is installed on the school playground and allows a special place where a child can go when they want someone to talk to. The friendship bench is a tool for positive mental and emotional heath and promotes a safe environment where they can seek support without the need to rationalize.
TOGETHER WE DISCOVER THE GIFT OF GIVING AND VOLUNTEERING
A Plus also joined in the efforts with other community organizations to donate time and equipment where tree care and landscaping improvement is needed. We have had the pleasure of partnering with the Boys & Girls Club in Placer County, Rebuilding San Diego, and Hero House in Seattle.
