The Clinton County CleanScapes Advisory Board Members would like to thank the Clinton County Community Foundation (CCCF) for its approval of a 2019 grant application for $4,001.58.
This grant will help CleanScapes, a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, cover expenses related to event insurance; computer anti-virus software; printing, mailing and educational materials; and other much-needed equipment used by volunteers during illegal dumpsite cleanups, such as gloves for volunteers and portable comfort station rentals when we work in remote locations.
“Over the last decade, the Foundation has been very supportive of our community service programming and we feel very strongly that the CCCF’s investment in our work made Clinton County a safer, more enjoyable place to live, work, visit and to recreate,” said CleanScapes Project Director Elisabeth Lynch McCoy. “Thank you again for your past support and for this new opportunity to continue our community clean-up programming.”
To date, CleanScapes has organized 121 community cleanup events and mentored 4,468 volunteers. Together, volunteers have removed 1,213 tons (2,427,100 lbs.) of discarded trash and flood-related manmade debris, and 13,094 derelict tires.
