Over 250 Pounds Of Litter Picked Up By Keep Shelby Beautiful Volunteers!
James Carringer, Mary Byrnes, Helen Gilliatt, Fred Blackley and Wiley Smith.
On a beautiful sunny spring morning, April 13th, five Keep Shelby Beautiful volunteers worked together to pick up litter along West Marion Street from Howie Drive to Highway 74.
This is one of the most heavily littered areas along a major entryway leading into uptown Shelby. But thanks to these hard working volunteers, giving up their Saturday morning, they picked up over 250 pounds of litter and recyclables along the busy road. The litter tossed out by motorists included everything from glass bottles, to aluminum cans, to fast food wrappers and a variety of other items.
These volunteers, who by their service, showed a love for their community were: James Carringer (Kings Mountain High School Senior); Keep Shelby Beautiful Commission Members – Helen Gilliatt and Wiley Smith, Keep Shelby Beautiful Advisor – Fred Blackley, and Keep Shelby Beautiful Coordinator – Mary Byrnes.
Keep Shelby Beautiful knows that clean communities are not just nice to look at – they are economically vibrant places where people want to live, work, shop and play. Service to the community is the ultimate declaration of love for where you live and for the people you share it with. Volunteer service is an important way that anyone can contribute to improving the quality of life in the community.
