Laudato Tree Project During Mission Week this year, Merion Mercy students will be working to raise money for the Laudato Tree Project. The funds we raise will go to the UN Desertification Program that employs local women to plant trees as a part of the Great Green Wall in sub-Saharan Africa.
Each tree costs $10 to plant. The members of Student Council will be writing the names of donors on leaves that we will add to the large tree on the wall in the Dining Commons.
We will post a time-lapse video of the finished product for everyone to see.
