Baton Rouge Green recently received a Toyota Tundra donated by the Team Automotive Group as a replacement for the organization’s 18-year-old work truck.

“This donation not only provides an important asset to the organization, but allows other donated funds to be used for our operations and programming, rather than for the purchase of a truck,” Baton Rouge Green Executive Director Diane Losavio said.

Established in 1988, Baton Rouge Green is a nonprofit organization with the mission to lead, educate and inspire the residents of the greater Baton Rouge area to conserve, plant and sustain the community’s trees and greenspaces, a news release said.
