Some local organizations worked with a national one in order to clean up certain areas of the community.
Keep America Beautiful partnered with First John 3:17 Ministry and Focus on Hope. They worked together to pick up trash and garbage in the area surrounding Meridian's Wesley House.
Keep America Beautiful believes that each of us holds an obligation to preserve and protect our environment.
Dorothy Lloyd is the Secretary of the national organization. She says everyone can help keep our communities clean.
"It's important because we all want to keep our neighborhoods clean and safe. And anytime we can come together and partner with other organizations to get that done, I think that's very important," says Lloyd.
Keep America Beautiful follows a practical approach that unites citizens, businesses and government to find solutions that advance our core issues of preventing litter, reducing waste and beautifying communities.
