Keep Sedona Beautiful to Receive 5% from Sales July 20
Sedona, AZ (July 7, 2011) – Keep Sedona Beautiful (KSB), Sedona’s oldest non profit, will receive 5% of all sales on Wednesday, July 20, 2011, from New Frontiers. The Litter Lifters will be the beneficiaries of the funds. From KSB’s web site about Litter Lifters:
“Litter Lifters are those citizens who volunteer to remove litter from our roadsides. Upon reflection, it may seem a small matter compared to personal issues or the national and global picture. Or it might just go unnoticed. However, the absence of litter on our roads is meaningful. It shows we care and take pride in this place. We believe visitors are more likely to return to a clean environment.
Keep Sedona Beautiful currently manages over 100 volunteer Litter Lifters, covering over 60 miles of roadway. A significant number have served the community for many years and in a few cases, over 20 years.
Because we favor less sign clutter on our roadways, you may not know that KSB Litter Lifters cover the entire length of SR 179, including, as you know, some very challenging segments. Only a single sign at each end identifies Keep Sedona Beautiful as the official Adopt-A-Highway permittee.
Our dedicated KSB Litter Lifters need everyone’s help. In fact, we currently need a few good folks to help on a regular or temporary basis. We provide all the tools; you get all the good feelings from a worthy contribution to our community. By the way, when you see a Litter Lifter, give a honk and wave to those tenacious folks wearing the bright orange vests, true heroes among us.
Call KSB at (928) 282-4938 or email at KSB@esedona.net for more information on how you can get involved.”
Many prominent citizens have been, or are still, Litter Lifters: Bill Eich, Citizen of the year 1999, Bill Kusner, former KSB President, and Harry Newman. Most Litter Lifters prefer to remain anonymous.
