Help Bring the Oaks Back to Oakridge Campaign
Friends of Oakridge is proud to announce that we have met our goal of $20,000 in our year-long appeal to Help Bring the Oaks Back to Oakridge. Thanks to the contributions made by our individual supporters, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the Northridge West, Chatsworth and Porter Ranch Neighborhood Councils, and the friends and family of Barbara Stanwyck, funds raised are sufficient to plant three oaks and install irrigation. A large oak tree was planted in front of the house last spring. Additional trees will be installed in the back at a later time.
Friends continues to welcome donations for rehabilitation at the property. Thank you for your continued generosity and support!
