If you're looking for a way to give back to your community on the Day of Action, you can take part in two community cleanups.

The first is part of United Way of Central Georgia's Day of Action on Saturday, June 18. Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful (KMBB) members and other community members will pick up trash, litter, and debris along the streets near the Brookdale Resource Center (3600 Brookdale Avenue). If you're interested in participating, the cleanup will start at the Center at 9:00 a.m. and will last until 11:00 a.m.

The other cleanup is the Divine 9 Community Cleanup, and it will happen on the same day in partnership with the NPHC: Macon-Middle Georgia Council. The cleanup is from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. and will start at the Historic Roxy Theater (445 Hazel Street).

"This is an opportunity for our community to come together and give back to different neighborhoods," said KMBB Executive Director Asha Ellen. KMBB is providing both cleanups with trash bags, litter pickers, gloves, and vests.  "We are so proud of those stepping up to make a significant difference in our community."

If you can't make it Saturday and you're interested in hosting your own community cleanup , contact Ellen at
