By April 23, 2019 No Comments

Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful, the City of Valdosta, Lowndes County, the City of Hahira, and the Annette Howell Turner Center For The Arts are joining forces with several local organizations and volunteers for the Great American Cleanup.

“This year we will again be working multiple sites,” said H. Aaron Strickland, Executive Director of Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful.  “We have cleanups and projects planned in the City of Valdosta, Lowndes County, Hahira, and at the Turner Center For The Arts .  Since we are having multiple sites for this event, we are asking those who would like to volunteer to call or email the K.L.V.B. office so they can be assigned to one of the locations.  This method allows us to plan effectively for volunteer placement.”  The Great American Cleanup will take place from 8:30 a.m.—noon on Saturday, April 27.  “We’re hoping for at least 100 volunteers. We’ve got a lot to do. We are trying to improve our communities, and this is an event that everyone that can participate in,” said Strickland.

The Great American Cleanup, a grassroots beautification, litter prevention, and community improvement program, is the signature event of Keep America Beautiful.  Citizens wanting to volunteer can call Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful at (229) 671-3698 or email at [email protected].  Strickland says, “Remember, litter will not pick itself up.  Please come out and help our communities in need.”
