Caring for Kids, our fundraising drive to support Primary Children’s Hospital is here! We invite you to donate any amount when you shop with us, now through June 24 to help the youngest members of our communities and their families while they seek treatment at the hospital.

Lee’s Trees

Throughout April and May, Lee’s coordinated with their local cities to plan and execute the Lee’s Trees project. This program donates trees to the cities surrounding each location and supplies volunteers to plant them.

Every time Lee’s guests use a reusable shopping bag they can earn a wooden nickel through the check stand. These wooden nickels are then deposited into a Lee’s Trees box, which is counted periodically during the year.

Once spring arrives those nickels are totaled and the donation process can begin.

Select cities surrounding Lee’s locations are chosen to receive the donation of trees. The wonderful personnel at the cities help to coordinate and plan this project.

This year the cities that received Lee’s Trees were:
Heber City
Hyde Park City
North Logan City

North Salt Lake City
Pleasant View City
Richmond City
Smithfield City
Woods Cross City

Each city was able to order 5-6 trees according to their preference and determine where they were needed most in the communities. Once that was determined the store scheduled a day when Lee’s Team Members could volunteer hours in their community to aid in planting. This year Lee’s Partnered with Comcast Cares Day in Smithfield, Richmond’s Citywide Arbor Day Clean up, and North Salt Lake City’s Arbor Day.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Lee’s Team Members to partner with the communities and help beautify and brighten the places where we live and serve.

 

Lee’s wants to thank all of the loyal guests who help their communities and environment by bringing in reusable bags.
