Keep PA Beautiful Receives Special Waste Management, KAB Grant For Pittsburgh Project

Keep PA Beautiful was one of 14 groups to receive special Think Green Community Improvement Grants sponsored by Waste Management and Keep American Beautiful.

            Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful proposes to work in conjunction with The Children’s Museum of  Pittsburgh to build an outdoor classroom on the museum property which will be available to  museum patrons and the Pittsburgh Public School System as part of their Head Start early  education programming. The Museum has agreed to maintain the outdoor classroom once  construction is complete. 
            "Now more than ever, communities rely on grassroots nonprofits and their volunteers to engage in hands-on projects that build greater civic pride, create a healthier environment and improve the local quality of life," said Matthew M. McKenna, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful, Inc. "We are truly grateful to Waste Management for the company's commitment to our mission, our affiliates, and to local stewardship efforts."
            "Waste Management is committed to providing innovative environmental solutions in the areas of recycling, energy efficiency and land conservation, which make our communities cleaner and improve the quality of life," said Barry Caldwell, WM senior vice president of public affairs and communications and past chairman of the KAB board. "We are honored to partner with KAB, which has a similar mission of supporting its affiliates through creative solutions that enhance our communities."
            A list of all grant recipients is available online.
