It’s that time again for the highly-anticipated communitywide cleanup and day of service. Volunteers are needed to help make this a successful event. Families, individuals, businesses, schools, and other groups are encouraged to sign up now to participate.
For the first time ever, Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) and Hands Across Rockdale are joining forces to sponsor the event because of their complimentary mission and goals. This is part of KCRB’s Great American Cleanup initiative for 2013.
The event will be on Sat., April 13 from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Dr., Conyers, GA, 30094.

Volunteers for the Great American Cleanup should come to RCA to check in starting at 8 am that Saturday, pick up their cleaning supplies and further instructions. All cleaning supplies will be provided for free.
Through public-private partnerships and strategic alliances with citizens, businesses and government, KCRB's efforts each year motivate hundreds of volunteers to clean up, beautify and improve Rockdale County, thereby creating safer and more livable environments.

KRCB Wins Presidents Circle Award
Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) received Keep America Beautiful President’s Circle Award during its recent 60th anniversary National Conference in Washington, D.C. The President’s Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in building and sustaining vibrant communities.
In qualifying for a President’s Circle Award, KCRB has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of excellence by conducting an annual Community Appearance Index, calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio and sponsoring activities focused on litter prevention, recycling and waste reduction, as well as beautification and community greening.
“One of Keep America Beautiful’s most effective tools is the work of our grassroots network of affiliate organizations, which has an impact on millions of Americans each year,” Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Matt McKenna said.
“Our affiliates are providing real solutions to local problems caused by litter, graffiti, illegal dumping, and other community blight by engaging volunteers of all ages in its effort to create a vibrant community.”
The seven-member KCRB Advisory Council, led by Chairwoman Maryalyce Phillips, is diligently working to grow the group even further and recruit more supporters from all ages and walks of life.
