Naturally, Newport News Awarded $500 Green Grant
Naturally, Newport News is a Keep America Beautiful affiliate that works with local partners on community-based outreach, education, cleanup, and beautification projects. Their “Lets Can It” program was piloted at Deer Park Elementary School and the Environmental Magnet Elementary School in Newport News last year.
The Green Grants funding will be used to purchase five cleanup kits that include items such as trash grabbers, safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and hand sanitizer. The kits will be used to start programs at five more elementary schools this year. It is one of several programs they conduct to reduce litter in Newport News.
What a beautiful idea!
