About Great American Cleanup
Each spring, Keep America Beautiful kicks off the Great American Cleanup (GAC), which is the country’s largest community improvement program that takes place in 20,000 communities. This national program engages 2+ million volunteers who take action in their communities to create positive change and lasting impact. Keep America Beautiful and its powerful network of community-based affiliates execute the GAC each year by launching service projects based on the knowledge and needs of local communities. We work closely with state governors, city mayors and other local government and civic officials to ensure that we’re meeting those needs in a sustainable way. For more information, visit kab.org.
