Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful (KADB) partnered with the art departments of Darton State College and Albany State University to paint a garden scene mural at the Adult Day Care Center of AARC. In December , KADB’s @Lowe’s Community Improvement Grant allowed KADB to install ceiling fans, pavers, flower beds and three raised garden boxes at AARC. The art students were elated to see the smiles on the AARC clients faces as they viewed the mural.
National Award winning Cole Cubs where at it again as they walk into Stockwell, Ind. during the “Cole Kids’ Cleanup” on May 20. Seventy-eight fourth and fifth graders worked in yards, flower beds, spread yards and yards of mulch, planted flowers and collected 38 bags of litter and yard waste for a total of 780 lbs or 10 lbs per student. They also recycled 60 lbs of paper from their snack.
Keep Akron Beautiful was privileged to work with a group of young students that cleaned up the Hyre Trail in Akron, OH during the most beautiful Saturday of the year, so far, on April 26, 2014! Andrew Lamb, our fearless volunteer leader, and his group, Pi Sigma Epsilon, gathered together on a Saturday morning and weren’t afraid to get dirty! They spent hours upon hours, pulling trash, tires, and interesting items out of the water along the Hyre Trail. Over 40 bags of trash was collected, along with multiple tires, bottles, cans and even some plastic furniture! Keep Akron Beautiful is proud to work with groups like this as we help to beautify the City of Akron throughout the entire month of April, stretching into the first week of May. Currently, we have 105 groups registered with more than 2,000 volunteers working to Keep Akron Beautiful!
