– Keep America Beautiful and UPS Foundation awarded local Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful affiliates, Keep Blair Beautiful and Keep Northeastern PA Beautiful, each with a $5,000 Community Tree Planting Grant.
Keep Blair Beautiful will partner with the Hollidaysburg Area High School, Blair County Conservation District and the local parks department to distribute trees.
“Our local Keep Blair Beautiful Affiliate is excited to have been awarded a grant from The UPS Foundation and Keep America Beautiful to plant trees throughout our communities,” said Katrina Pope, Keep Blair Beautiful Affiliate Coordinator. “Our goal is to inspire our residents to create clean, green, and beautiful places. We will be using the grant to plant fruit trees at a local school, restore trees to a wetland and stream border, and place shade trees at a new playground.”
