Phoenix: SCA & MUFG Community Engagement Event

Saturday, November 11, 2017 - November 11, 2017 9:00 am


Join SCA and MUFG on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 11TH to restore Papago Park!

Since the establishment of Global Volunteer Month in 2013, MUFG employees all over the world have been working together on initiatives to host local contribution activities. SCA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor by facilitating opportunities for MUFG employees, family, and friends to engage in team-based service projects in 8 different cities. The projects will focus on some of the most urgent conservation needs in underserved urban communities.

Papago Park is a part of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve which encompasses a group of park sites in the foothills of the Phoenix Mountains. The Preserve offers hiking and horseback riding just outside the city and protects native habitat for cacti and other desert wildlife. MUFG employees will join SCA volunteers in Phoenix to preserve this native habitat for future generations to enjoy.

WHEN: Saturday, November 11th, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Registration & breakfast beginning at 9:00 am, kickoff at 9:30. Work will conclude at 12:00 with lunch to follow.

WHERE: Papago Park, 625 N Galvin Pkwy, Phoenix, AZ 85008. Free parking available at Ramada 2. 

WHAT: Volunteers will help to preserve the native desert habitat by trimming back overgrown native trees and will support the restoration of the park’s facilities by painting and sanding historic ramadas. Projects will be appropriate for all ages and abilities. 

BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

PROVIDED: SCA will provide breakfast and lunch along with work gloves, safety gear, and all project materials. Reusable water bottles will be provided along with water stations.
