As an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Keep Smyrna Beautiful volunteers have the opportunity to work locally joining two million other volunteers across the United States in the nation’s largest annual community improvement program - the Great American Cleanup. Individuals over the age of 12 (a 1-3 adult to youth ratio is required) and groups are welcome! Clean a mile of roadway, help with registration, or set up a covered dish meal for the volunteers-the choice is yours!  Lunch and T-shirts will be provided for those who volunteer on this day.  Pre-registration required!
