In Mar. 29 issue, Russell County News
The Russell County Fiscal Court received $4,400 in PRIDE funds from Eastern Kentucky PRIDE who recently announced the 2008 recipients of PRIDE Spring Cleanup Grant Awards.
The grant funds will be used solely for tipping fees to dispose of trash collected during the 2008 PRIDE Spring Cleanup set for April 5-19.
PRIDE awarded a total of $142,113 for Spring Cleanup to counties, cities and non-profit organizations in southern and eastern Kentucky, including Russell County, whose PRIDE program is coordinated by H.M. Bottom.
“Spring Cleanup is a great way to prepare our beautiful region for the busy tourist season,” said Karen Engle, PRIDE President and Chief Executive Officer. “I would like to encourage all citizens to take personal responsibility and volunteer for the 2008 PRIDE Spring Cleanup in your community.”
“Citizens play a vital role in the PRIDE campaign,” Engle continued. “Over the past 11 years, 239,095 PRIDE volunteers have volunteered to clean the waterways and roadways of southern and eastern Kentucky, collecting a total of 508,671 bags of trash.”
