Donor Spotlight: Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s

I Love A Clean San Diego is grateful for the partnership of Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s through its Community Partners Grant Program, which has supported critical community improvement needs countywide. This year, the grant enabled ILACSD to host a cleanup event and expand the Adopt-A-Beach program at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park in Encanto. In just one morning, more than 150 volunteers trimmed trees, cleared over 3,500 pounds of green waste and litter, painted 16 storm drains with conservation messages, and planted drought-tolerant plants around the park’s community center. The park is now available as an adoptable site, providing continued volunteer opportunities at this valuable community resource. Thank you to Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s for empowering volunteers and making a difference for our local environment!
