Press Release

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – October 30, 2007 – This past Saturday, cast and crew members from NBC's popular daytime drama Days of our Lives helped beautify the North Hollywood Park (11455 Magnolia Blvd., North Hollywood, CA) at the first "Days of our Lives Adopt-a-Park" event in support of NBC Universal's "Green is Universal" campaign.

Throughout the day approximately 40 people attended the event including Days cast members Deidre Hall, Alison Sweeney, Stephen Nichols, James Scott, Nadia Bjorlin, Brandon Beemer, Darin Brooks, Blake Berris, Matthew Florida, Kristen Renton and their family and friends.

Wearing green T-shirts with the "Green Is Universal" logo the cast and crew planted approximately 15 trees, cleaned up several flowerbeds, picked up trash, and raked leaves.

"It was a pleasure working with the cast of Days of our Lives this weekend," said Tom Leveque, North Hollywood Park Maintenance Supervisor, Department of Recreation & Park, City of Los Angeles, "The staff and I really appreciated all of their hard work in helping to beautify the park and we look forward to their next visit."

Days of our Lives hopes that this event will encourage their fans to get involved in beautifying their own local communities, and suggests fans to contact their local parks’ department to find out about similar programs.

"Planting a tree is a gift we give to our children, our town, and our planet. If feels good on every level, and I highly recommend it!" said Deidre Hall.
