The Solace Tree Receives Backyard Makeover

Excerpt From KTVN News:

Some Boy Scouts and local companies came together Friday to help kids who are suffering from grief and loss.

Troop 7322 spent the day with Sierra Nevada Landscape and Dayton Valley Turf making over the backyard of the “Solace Tree.” It’s a home for children and teens that have lost their loved ones.

“They all came down together to make it even more of a safe place aside from home which we called ‘safe haven.’ As a whole inside and outside, people can congregate, eat, drink, and talk over, feel safe and feel good,” says Emilio Parga.

The companies donated their time, material and machinery for this project.

The Solace Tree provides support to more than 600 children a year.
