Volunteers Take Action to Clean, Restore and Renew Fort Pierce!

Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful, which builds and sustains a clean, green and a more beautiful Fort Pierce, announced today the launch of the 2016 Great American Cleanup. Entering its 18th year, the Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off in more than 20,000 communities each spring.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to noon at PAL Park located at 903 S. 21st Street in Fort Pierce. All volunteers will be assigned to one of the following teams: graffiti removal, a painting project at Jetty Park and landscape beautification at the Fort Pierce Police Department which will be part of the Arbor Day Celebration. Each volunteer will receive a free T-Shirt, goody bag and safety supplies (while supplies last). Volunteers will also enjoy a FREE grilled lunch and refreshing drinks provided by our sponsors.

“It is extremely important to have our Fort Pierce residents come out and volunteer to keep Fort Pierce beautiful. We had several hundred volunteers last year and we are looking to increase the number of volunteers this year,” said Paul Bertram, Executive Director of Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful.

Each year, the Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup engages more than 4 million volunteers and participants across the country to take action in their local communities to create positive change and lasting impact.
