A very important event is coming up this weekend – and everyone is encouraged to pitch in pick up and do their part to help make things better for everyone:
That’s Sam Marko with the Weiss Lake Improvement Association.
Beginning with that initial community cleanup effort back in the year 2000, Alabama Power employees and volunteers have gathered annually, to dedicate a day to the removal of trash along the state’s watersheds. Since the start of the Renew Our Rivers initiative thousands of volunteers have worked to remove in excess of thirteen million pounds of trash. Renew Our Rivers engages thousands of partners across Alabama, and in surrounding states. Promoting education through programs like Renew Our Rivers, Alabama Power is a partner in furthering conservation stewardship in communities.
For more than a decade the company has helped create and distribute over 50,000 Message in the Bottle coloring books focused on conservation and litter prevention to schools across the state.
