Keep Suffolk Beautiful Awarded $500 for Litter Prevention
Keep Suffolk Beautiful promotes public interest in the general improvement of the environment, and coordinates programs for litter control. Due to recent events and the possibility that social distancing will continue for a period of time, KSB will create cleanup kits so that families in the community will have the tools needed to clean up safely.
Grant funds will be used to purchase cleanup supplies for the kits, such as grabbers, vests, gloves, and trash bags. Families will complete an application to obtain a kit, and agree to report cleanup activity to the Litter Control Office. Keep Suffolk Beautiful will share their pictures on social media to raise awareness of litter prevention, and praise volunteer efforts in the fight against litter.
Keep Suffolk Beautiful believes that each of us holds an obligation to preserve and protect our environment. That’s an idea everyone can support!
