Recycling At the Park Made Easieralt

KBGIB is one of only two Georgia Keep America Beautiful affiliates

to be awarded the national KAB/Dr. Pepper-Snapple public park recycling

grant. This summer a total of 26 new bottle/can recycle bins were placed in

Glynn County and City of Brunswick public parks, making it easier for

visitors and residents to recycle when spending time relaxing and

having fun in our community's public spaces.

  


 

KBGIB participates in state-wide


initiative, GA GIVES DAY!


Donors can visit the website below all year long to pledge to their favorite

non-profit organization - and we hope it's Keep Brunswick-Golden Isles Beautiful!

Although November 13th is a state-wide effort to recognize the importance of

your local nonprofits, KBGIB welcomes your support any day of the year!

(Donations made via the site below will be recognized as a 2015 KBGIB Partner.)
