Keep Williamsburg Beautiful Receives Funds to Support Litter Solutions

Keep Williamsburg Beautiful (KWB) received $1,580 through PalmettoPride’s Keep South Carolina Beautiful (KSCB) Annual Support Grant to implement initiatives, programs, and projects designed to increase litter prevention in the community.

The KSCB Annual Support Grant provides local Keep America Beautiful (KAB) affiliates in South Carolina with a competitive financial opportunity to add additional resources that address specific local litter concerns.

Funds were awarded to KWB for litter programs in the community including replacement of plants in the towns of Greeleyville, Hemingway, Lane and Kingstree and several litter cleanups throughout the year. In addition, funds provided bags, Reechers and gloves to local groups as support for their cleanup efforts. Grant funds also provided travel for carrying out programs in the county and assisting with the annual Keep America Beautiful membership fee.

These are just a few examples of how the support grant will address litter issues through positive environmental, social and financial impacts.

Mallory Coffey, KSCB State Leader said, “These funds will help Keep Williamsburg Beautiful sustain or develop strategies and actions that address litter concerns in a fiscally responsible manner. The affiliates receiving these awards are national leaders in sustainable solutions.”

Sarah Lyles, PalmettoPride Executive Director stated, “Supporting organizations like Keep Williamsburg Beautiful directly impact the social, economic and environmental development of local communities.”

“Keep Williamsburg Beautiful’s successes are a result of the development and investment in solutions our volunteers and citizens can be part of,” said Leslee Spivey, Executive Director of KWB. “Thanks to this funding from and our partnership with PalmettoPride, training from Keep South Carolina Beautiful, and the support from our local and state elected officials, we can proudly say we are leaders in developing and sustaining clean and beautiful communities.
