Who:

CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation's leading transportation companies, connecting customers to ports, distribution centers and markets across the eastern United States. Through grass-roots volunteerism and focused corporate giving, CSX is committed to supporting the communities where it operates. City Year is an education-focused, nonprofit organization founded in 1988 that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. In 23 communities across the United States and through two international affiliates, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time service in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs. Alliance for Community Trees (ACTrees) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health and livability of cities by planting and caring for trees. With over 200 member organizations in 44 states and Canada, ACTrees engages volunteers to take action to improve the environment where 93% of people live: in cities, towns, and metropolitan areas. Together, ACTrees member organizations have planted and cared for over 15 million trees with help from over 5 million volunteers. The vision of the Jacksonville Port Authority is to be a major economic engine for Northeast Florida by continuing to be a premier diversified port in the Southeastern United States with connections to major trade lanes throughout the world. Greenscape of Jacksonville is a nonprofit organization founded in 1975 with the mission of enhancing Jacksonville through the planting, protection, and promotion of trees. Since that time, Greenscape is credited with adding over 300,000 trees to the Jacksonville tree canopy.

Gilbert Middle School is a participant. Achiever's for Life works with local businesses to match mentors and advocates with students at risk of dropping out. In addition to engaging in volunteer service for the school, in 2010, CSX leadership packed and donated much-needed school supplies to the entire student body and its teachers.

 

How:

"Trees for Tracks" is CSX's commitment to plant 21,000 trees, one for every mile of track, over the next five years, in the areas most in need of green.
