October is Roadside PRIDE month

pride

The weather is cooling down and it is the prefect opportunity to get out of the house and volunteer. Now is the time to join in southern and eastern Kentucky’s fall cleanup campaign, Roadside PRIDE. The Roadside PRIDE campaign encourages volunteers to pick up litter near their home, church, school, business or favorite spot this fall. PRIDE provides trash bags and gloves to volunteers who pick up litter and dispose of it with their own trash. For supplies, please call the PRIDE office toll free at 888-577-4339.

“After a hot summer, it’s a great time to get outside and work to improve our environment,” said Tammie Wilson of PRIDE, the nonprofit organization that organizes volunteer cleanup events across the 42-county region. “If we take time to clean up our communities now, we create a welcoming scene for all the visitors coming to the area to experience the wonderful fall colors and other natural beauty our region has to offer.”

Volunteers may contact their local PRIDE Coordinator after they pick up litter and dispose of it with their trash. The coordinator will add the volunteer hours to the city or county’s Roadside PRIDE tally. PRIDE will recognize the region’s cities and counties with the most Roadside PRIDE volunteers.

PRIDE, which stands for “Personal Responsibility In a Desirable Environment,” was founded in 1997 by Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-5) and the late James Bickford, who was the Kentucky Secretary for Natural Resources and Environmental Protection. The PRIDE mission is to contribute to the economic and cultural growth of southern and eastern Kentucky by improving water quality, cleaning up solid waste problems and advancing environmental education, in order to improve living conditions for its residents while enhancing the potential for tourism industry growth in the region.
