WEST CHESTER, PA — As part of the 25th anniversary of the “Great American Cleanup”, Chester County’s Keep Chester County Beautiful program is featuring a Spring Giveaway to help a selected volunteer group get started with a cleanup event that honors the nationwide anniversary.
The Great American Cleanup is held each spring, with community groups holding events such as litter cleanups, tree plantings, restoring nature trails, and other impactful projects.
Chester County’s Spring Giveaway includes 15 ‘Keep Chester County Beautiful’ safety vests and 20 litter grabber tools, presented to a volunteer group that meets the qualifying guidelines. To qualify, volunteer groups must:
- Host a clean-up event during the Great American Cleanup dates of March 20 to June 21;
- Follow “Keep Chester County Beautiful” on social media; and
- Email a brief description of the volunteer group to [email protected] by Sunday, April 2.
The winning volunteer group will be announced on Monday, April 3.
“One of Chester County’s goals is to build capacity within the community to keep our roads and natural areas clean and beautiful. We’re giving away some supplies that can help a new group get started, or that can help an established group refresh their supplies,” said Carrie Conwell, Keep Chester County Beautiful coordinator at the Chester County Planning Commission.
