RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eltek Valere, a global leader in power solutions, announced today its proud support and financial sponsorship of the City of Richardson’s ”Tree the Town” program, an ambitious project to plant 50,000 new trees across the city over the next decade. The planting project is being supported by leading local organizations and various industry leaders as well as thousands of volunteers. The kickoff event was held Sunday, April 18th at Galatyn Plaza in Richardson, TX, with the initial planting of 100 trees.
“We are extremely excited about the benefits of this ambitious initiative for our community and our partnership with Eltek Valere, whose contributions and enthusiasm have helped make this happen,” said Richardson Mayor Gary Slagel. “’Tree The Town’ fits squarely within the City Council’s goal of being a regional leader in the development of initiatives that preserve and improve our living environment, and we are thankful that Eltek Valere was able to help us celebrate at the recent kick-off event.”
“We are proud to support such a ground-breaking and inspirational program,” said Allen Pitts, President of Eltek Valere, Americas Region. “At Eltek Valere, we have been successful in designing and bringing to market the first power products that dramatically reduce the energy consumption and carbon footprint of our customers’ networks. We are proud to sponsor an initiative which provides a direct and positive impact on the environment and our community, just as Eltek Valere products do for our customers.”
The non-profit Texas Trees Foundation has partnered with the City of Richardson to manage and coordinate the first round of tree plantings, and to maintain and water the newly planted trees for the first year. After the first year, the City of Richardson will assume responsibility for continued care of trees planted on public property.
