Indian Land Action Council
The Indian Land Action Council is planning the first Indian Land Community Clean-up Week, set for April 2-9.
The goal is to clean up litter along the major roadways such as U.S. 521, S.C. 160, Shelley Mullis, River, Henry Harris, Possum Hollow, Harrisburg and Marvin roads, as well as areas around businesses, schools, and homes.
The Indian Land Action Council challenges everyone to do something:
• Local Adopt-a-Highway groups can schedule one of their clean-up days during this week.
• Subdivisions on a common road (such as Jim Wilson and Calvin Hall) can work together as a team to clean up that road.
• Schools can create a learning experience through picking up litter around the school.
• Churches can plan a clean-up day during this week to clean up their church grounds.
• Groups can target areas they think need attention.
• Friends can form a group to help someone who may need help in cleaning up their yard.
• Neighbors can work together to pick up around their homes and the road in front of their house.
• Businesses can form teams to clean up around their property and road entrances.
For beautification groups, neighborhood associations and nonprofit organizations, there is an added incentive – they are eligible to apply for community pride grants of $2,000 through South Carolina Palmetto Pride.
Details on the grants are available at www.palmettopride.org/programs/aware ness/awareness-grants. If you have a landscaping project but no money, this could help.
Indian Land Action Council will be coordinating the event and will arrange for bags, pick-up, etc.
