Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup (GAC), the nation's largest community improvement program, takes place this Saturday April 24th in Madisonville. Volunteers are asked to meet in the Post-office Parking-lot at 9am for assignments and supplies. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
GAC is a national cleanup effort involving an estimated 2.8 million volunteers and attendees. The hardworking volunteers donated more than 8 million hours in 2009 to clean, beautify and improve more than 17,000 communities during more than 30,000 events in all 50 states and beyond. Activities included beautifying parks and recreation areas, cleaning seashores and waterways, handling recycling collections, picking up litter, planting trees and flowers, and conducting educational programs and litter-free events.
