LITTLE ROCK (March 17, 2020) – Cleanup coordinators and volunteers seeking to participate in the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission’s (KAB) Great American Cleanup have an extended opportunity to do their part and get involved this spring and into the summer.
“Based on recent updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19) from U.S. President Donald Trump and Governor Asa Hutchinson, KAB encourages spring cleanup coordinators to assess their upcoming cleanup events for the health and safety of potential volunteers and determine if the event should be rescheduled for a later date,” said Mark Camp, executive director of KAB.
The Great American Cleanup in Arkansas will be extended through June 30 for cleanup coordinators needing to reschedule their cleanup event for a date outside of the designated March 1 through May 31 cleanup season.
“We want our statewide volunteers to make their best judgement and stay safe at this time,” said Camp. “As always, we appreciate all of you that work so hard to help keep Arkansas beautiful.
Any cleanup coordinator needing to reschedule their event is asked to reach out to Robyn Taylor, volunteer program manager, to update their event information to help volunteers be aware of the change. Please email all reschedule notifications and promotional items to [email protected].
