Rio Grande Credit Union Plants and Funded Trees in Albuquerque

Rio Grande Credit Union (RGCU) increased the tree canopy in Albuquerque with a second donation to Tree New Mexico in May 2022, in association with the opening of their new Montgomery Branch at 4700 Montgomery Blvd NE. This donation of $3,000 increased the number of trees and tree education for Albuquerque residents. RGCU supports their employees’ volunteering across the city and specifically planting trees with Tree New Mexico.

Since 2020, RGCU employees and their families have volunteered over 105 hours at Tree New Mexico Spring and Fall tree plantings assisting in planting over 210 trees. “RGCU employees are wonderful volunteers who cheerfully work hard and get a lot done!” -Tamar Randall, TNM Development Director.
