Keep Charlotte Beautiful Receives $5K Grant
Local Environmental Nonprofit Awarded Funds by Waste Management
Keep Charlotte Beautiful, a local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc., recently received a five thousand dollar Think Green grant by Waste Management. KCB was awarded this grant for their proposal of three different projects, the first of which is a new garden for the Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida meeting house.
Keep Charlotte Beautiful’s next major project will be participating in the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup on September 15, 2012. Nearly 600,000 participants from across the globe gathered over 9 million pounds of trash in just one day.
