Keep America Beautiful, Inc. is the nation´s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization. Earlier this month, the organization´s signature three-month Great American Cleanup launched in Waveland, MS, a region devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
With the help of thousands of hard-working local volunteers, Veteran´s Memorial area, Gex Park and Waveland Ballpark received much-needed facelifts. Amazing before and after pictures can be viewed here.
Keep America Beautiful has more than 17,000 events planned through the end of May 2009 – all across the United States. Find out how you can get involved with a Great American Cleanup project in your area, by clicking here.
