|For the second year in a row, the Atlanta Hawks partnered with Arrow Exterminators on the Threes for Trees program. As part of the initiative, and in conjunction with NBA Green Week, the organizations helped beautify the grounds of Hope Hill Elementary and planted a tree in memory of Walt Bellamy and Dan Roundfield, two Hawks Alumni that have passed away in recent years.
Family members of both Bellamy and Roundfield, former and
current Hawks players, in addition to Hawks and Arrow Exterminator's staff, dedicated their time to attend and participate in the project.
For every 3-pointer the Hawks scored throughout the 2013-14 season, a monetary contribution was made to Trees Atlanta. Bob Williams, President of the Atlanta Hawks and Philips Arena, and Mike Warren, Senior Vice President of Operations at Arrow Exterminators presented a $10,000 check to Trees Atlanta Co-Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer, Connie Veates on April 4th, when the Hawks defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to fund the makeover at Hope Hill Elementary.
