Weis Markets Supports Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful 2018 Great American Cleanup of PA

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Wednesday announced Weis Markets has pledged support for their 2018 Great American Cleanup of PA, a statewide community improvement initiative that runs from March 1 through May 31.
Events registered with the initiative receive free cleanup supplies of gloves, bags and vests, as supplies last and access to free or reduced disposal costs at participating landfills.
Weis Markets, a Mid-Atlantic food retailer operating 204 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia, has renewed their partnership with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful as well as donated refreshments for registered participants of the Great American Cleanup of PA in select areas across the state.
Weis Markets has been supporting the statewide initiative since 2014.
“Weis Markets is proud to partner with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful,” said Patti Olenick, Sustainability Manager.  “It is part of our commitment to sustainability, being good stewards of the environment and giving back to the communities we serve.  We’ve been serving our local communities for 105 years and we are excited to be part of the Great American Cleanup of PA.”
“We are grateful for the continued support of Weis Markets. Their donation of gift cards provides an added incentive to all those volunteers and organizations working tirelessly to keep our communities clean and beautiful,” states Shannon Reiter, President of Keep PA Beautiful. “Our volunteers and sponsors are who help make the Great American Cleanup of PA, Pennsylvania’s premier community improvement initiative, possible. We couldn’t do it without them.”
Since the inception of this statewide, annual event in 2004, over 2.1 million volunteers have picked up 97 million pounds of litter and waste and cleaned 170,619 miles of roads, waterways, shorelines, and trails.
More than 181,000 trees, bulbs, and flowers have been planted.  Volunteers also removed over 279,681 tires and 226,395 pounds of scrap metal during events coordinated through this initiative.
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is the state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization. Your contribution will directly support the Great American Cleanup of PA efforts.
