Threshers August Charity of the Month – Keep Pinellas Beautiful
Since 1992, Keep Pinellas Beautiful has been providing opportunities for meaningful service to bay area residents of all ages. As a volunteer‐based, 501(c)3 nonprofit community action/education organization and certified affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Keep Pinellas Beautiful forms partnerships with local governments, businesses, schools, non‐profits, and neighborhood organizations to turn public spaces into beautiful places.
Our mission is to conserve and beautify our natural environment by means of community engagement and education. Our four focus areas are litter prevention, waste reduction, conservation, and beautification. From Tampa Bay to the Gulf of Mexico, from Tarpon Springs to Ft. DeSoto, Keep Pinellas Beautiful works with volunteers to foster unity and strengthen community bonds through improvement and beautification efforts across Pinellas County.
Cleaning up our public spaces, parks, neighborhoods and shorelines is only part of the picture. We’re about people working with people for the betterment of our communities. Keep Pinellas Beautiful provides volunteer opportunities that develop individual responsibility and environmental stewardship. Through hands on participation, we get people excited, inspiring an environmental motivation and developing a true sense of pride and ownership. People feel good about volunteering with us because they immediately see the difference they are making in the health and appearance of their community.
