Engaging Customers and Inspiring Employees: Celebrating a 15-Year Partnership with U-Haul

U-Haul Dealers attended the Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park ribbon cutting ceremony. Thanks to support from U-Haul, the community's vision for turning this previously fenced off space is now a Park with Purpose in the English Avenue community that offers flooding relief and a safe gathering space for residents.

Over the last 15 years, U-Haul and its customers have supported The Conservation Fund’s conservation efforts across the country, including key forests along the Georgia coast and local parks in the heart of Atlanta. The Bullard Creek Wildlife Management Area, a 14,200 acre coastal forest, is home to the gopher tortoise— a priority conservation species. Direct support from U-Haul customers helped to enable the protection of 101 of those acres. In Atlanta, four Parks with Purpose were created in collaboration with local partners and with funding from U-Haul customers as that will help to equitably address economic and environmental challenges in underserved communities. Across the country, U-Haul’s Customer Giving program has planted 1 million trees to help restore forests, improve local ecosystems where native plants and animals can thrive, and capture carbon emissions.  

 The Conservation Fund is exceptionally grateful to U-Haul for its vision, trust and partnership that has allowed us to create lasting benefits for people and the environment.
