Goose Island Beer Company stopped by New York City on July 29 and Philadelphia on Aug. 5 as part of its Migration Week Tour, which brings the popular Goose Island craft beer to more than 25 cities across the country and throughout the world, encouraging friends and patrons to meet their brewers and enjoy their beers. During five of the week-long tour stops, Keep America Beautiful community-based affiliates and partners are conducting community improvement volunteer events.

The tour stopped at All People's Garden in the East Village of Manhattan on July 29 with Keep America Beautiful partner GrowNYC  conducted a hands-on volunteer project to help beautify the community garden. The garden was created in 1978 by former VISTA volunteer Olean For in an effort to unite her block against heavy drug trafficking in her neighborhood.

In Philadelphia on Aug. 5, Keep Philadelphia Beautiful and Fairmount CDC, a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in Philadelphia's Art Museum District, engaged more than 30 volunteers on the morning of Aug. 5 to construct and deliver approximately 42 planters to property owners along the Fairmount Avenue commercial corridor.
