Each spring, Keep America Beautiful launches the Great American Cleanup, which is the nation’s largest community improvement program that harnesses the power of millions of volunteers to build and sustain vibrant communities.

Every year more than 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage volunteers to take action in their communities through programs that deliver positive and lasting results. In 2013, more than 4.5 million Great American Cleanup volunteers/participants worked a collective 8.1 million hours to return nearly $175 million in measurable benefits in 21,000 communities across the country.

Keep Norfolk Beautiful is the Keep America Beautiful Norfolk affiliate; Suburban Acres Civic League, along with many other organizations and individual volunteers, partners with KNB each year for the Great American Cleanup and other beautification and litter prevention events. The Archer’s Green Apartments community not only helps with the Great American Cleanup, but has an ongoing litter prevention agreement and program with the civic league.

Please join us for a couple of hours Saturday May 3rd as we focus on accumulated litter in several areas of the neighborhood on the shores of the Lafayette River. Meet some neighbors…pull some litter from the Lafayette…Keep Norfolk, and Suburban Acres, Beautiful!
