Volunteers in spring community cleanup will beautify state
LITTLE ROCK (Feb. 5, 2016) – Arkansans statewide are encouraged to spruce up their communities by volunteering in the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup in Arkansas. This year’s spring cleanup campaign, coordinated and promoted by the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission (KAB), begins March 1 and continues through May 31.
All Arkansans are encouraged to take part in the annual community cleanup initiative. Those interested in organizing a cleanup event or volunteering with a local event can visit KeepArkansasBeautiful.com, email info@KeepArkansasBeautiful.com or call 888-742-8701 toll-free.
“The Great American Cleanup is an excellent opportunity for Arkansans to make a positive impact on the environment, the state and their local communities,” said Elizabeth Philpott, KAB volunteer program manager. “We encourage everyone to participate in a local event or sign up to coordinate an event.”
KAB will work with cleanup coordinators to plan and publicize their local events, and provide volunteers with Glad® trash bags, gloves, safety vests and other cleanup supplies.
