Litter Sweeps

Keep Charleston Beautiful conducts litter sweeps year round with volunteer groups of any size. Locations are flexible and often depend on group size, environmental need, time of year, and volunteer preferences. All cleanup supplies are provided.

Fundraising

Looking for a fun way for your company or organization to give back and help us support Keep Charleston Beautiful? Coordinate a fundraising event for your coworkers, friends, or family members. Get the group together at a local brewery or restaurant. Talk with a manager beforehand and ask that a portion of sales ($1/pint, %10 food sales, etc.) be donated to Friends of Keep Charleston Beautiful. We are happy to come join in the fun as well, and set up an informational table. Going out for happy hour, make it an event for the whole company and coordinate a donation with the business.

Adopt-A-Stop

Keep Charleston Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Stop Program is a partnership with CARTA. Volunteers can “adopt” an unsheltered CARTA bus stop. Adoption of the bus stop includes routinely emptying a trashcan for the stop, and cleaning up litter around the area. All supplies are provided by KCB, including the trashcan painted by local students, trashcan lid, bags, and other litter cleanup supplies.

Tabling Events

We frequently host informational tables at festivals, informational fairs, fundraising events, sporting events, and litter cleanup after-parties. It is always helpful to have one or two volunteers help us out at the information table. If you enjoy chatting with people and spreading the mission of Keep Charleston Beautiful, then this is right up your alley.
