Keep Sarasota County Beautiful is seeking volunteers to join forces for the 2013 Great American Cleanup from 8 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 27, at sites throughout Sarasota County. In case of rain, the cleanup will be Saturday, May 4.

The Great American Cleanup has made an impact on Sarasota County by creating a cleaner, safer and more beautiful environment for more than 20 years. The nation's largest cleanup, beautification and community improvement program is built on a foundation of individual responsibility and civic pride. Across the nation, millions of volunteers in over 15,000 communities participate in more than 30,000 community improvement events to clean local parks, waterways, trails, sidewalks and streets.

"Volunteers make a huge impact on the cleanliness of our community," said Wendi Crisp, Program Coordinator of Keep Sarasota County Beautiful. "We see neighbors, youth and adult civic associations, schools, churches and individuals come together during the Great American Cleanup to help rid Sarasota County of unsightly litter."

The 2013 Great American Cleanup is made possible through the support of corporate sponsors, including theDow Chemical Company, Gatorade, Glad Products Company, LG, Nestle Pure Life, PepsiCo, Solo Cup Company, Troy-Bilt, Waste Management Inc. and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company.
