In qualifying for a President’s Circle Award, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of merit by administering activities in the areas of litter prevention, recycling and waste reduction, and beautification and community greening.
Established in 1953, Keep America Beautiful consists of a national network of more than 600 statewide and community-based affiliates whose programs, initiatives and efforts, supported by millions of volunteers, help transform public spaces into beautiful places.
“One of Keep America Beautiful’s most effective tools is the work of our grassroots network of community-based affiliate organizations, which has an impact on millions of Americans each year,” said Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Jennifer Jehn. “Our affiliates are providing real solutions that help create communities that are socially connected, environmentally healthy and economically sound.”
“Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is privileged to be a part of a national network of like-minded individuals that allows greater access to tools and resources for the volunteers and communities we serve,” said Shannon Reiter, President, Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “We are honored to be recognized by Keep America Beautiful.”
