Covington, KY - Keep Covington Beautiful (KCB) is preparing for the Great American Cleanup, Covington's largest annual volunteer day of service, taking place on Saturday, April 29, 2017.
Each year, the Great American Cleanup attracts nearly 1,000 volunteers working at more than 30 project sites across Covington. In 2016, volunteers picked up three tons of trash, planted 77 trees, and spread 15 truckloads of mulch in an effort to clean and beautify the city.
In addition to needing volunteers, Keep Covington Beautiful is seeking donations to help fund The Great American Cleanup. KCB is excited to announce that Rumpke is coming back in 2017 as a title sponsor!
Business owners are invited to learn how they and their employees can get involved in The Great American Cleanup through sponsorship and volunteer opportunities during the business breakfast at Braxton Brewery from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 9.
Individuals interested in learning more can attend a volunteer information night at the Hellmann Creative Center, 321 W. MLK Blvd., Covington, KY, from 6 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 9. Interested individuals, neighborhoods, and groups of any kind that want to participate in the event or lead a site are encouraged to attend.
The Great American Cleanup is presented in partnership with Keep Covington Beautiful, the Center for Great Neighborhoods, and The City of Covington.
