For the fifth consecutive year, the national Keep America Beautiful organization honored the Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful program with its prestigious President’s Circle Award at their national conference. The President’s Circle Award recognizes exemplary performance by certified affiliates of the national nonprofit in creating clean, green and beautiful communities.
Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful has met Keep America Beautiful’s standards of merit by conducting an annual Community Appearance Index, calculating the affiliate’s cost/benefit ratio, and administering activities in the areas of ending littering, improving recycling, and beautifying the Fort Pierce community. Established in 1953, Keep America Beautiful consists of a national network of more than 620 community-based affiliates whose programs, initiatives and efforts, supported by millions of volunteers, help transform public spaces into beautiful places.
“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,” said Keep America Beautiful COO Becky Lyons. “Our affiliates are providing real solutions that help create communities that are socially connected, environmentally healthy and economically sound.”
Paul Bertram, Executive Director of Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful said, “This prestigious award would not have been possible without the continued support of our Keep Fort Pierce Beautiful Advisory Board and the fantastic volunteers we have throughout the year.”
