In its 20th year as an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, the Keep Florence Beautiful Board of Directors, along with individuals, churches, nonprofit organizations, political organizations, businesses and schools, join hands in cleaning up Florence and ridding streets and neighborhoods of debris and trash.

The Great American Cleanup (GAC) will be held Saturday, April 18, 2020. Volunteers will be cleaning their designated areas of the community then meeting at Naturally Outdoors Outfitters, 2519 W Palmetto Street, Florence, where teams turn in their clean up reports and enjoy a free lunch provided by Keep Florence Beautiful and its sponsors’ between 11:00 - 1:00 pm.

Keep Florence Beautiful has teamed up with Florence County Disabilities and Special Needs to collect paper at Naturally Outdoors, to be recycled; the paper will be collected onsite then shredded at the AAA certified Palmetto Secure Document Destruction Facility.

In addition to the “GAC” Keep Florence Beautiful will also be celebrating Earth Day during the April 18th event. Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world to demonstrate support for environmental protection, in 2020 we celebrate the 50th Year Anniversary of this event world-wide. Special activities and information about how you can make a difference in your community will be provided to everyone that attends the luncheon at Naturally Outdoors (2519 W Palmetto Street, Florence).
