Coca-Cola Bin Grant Program Kick-Off
Organization: Latrobe-Unity Parks & Recreation
Description: Latrobe-Unity Parks & Recreation (LUPR) will get a boost to their recycling efforts this summer thanks to the Coca-Cola Bin Grant Program, made possible by support from The Coca-Cola Foundation and Keep America Beautiful (KAB). Latrobe Unity Parks & Rec will receive 25 recycling bins designed for placement in LUPR parks throughout the community.
The public is invited to attend a recycling kick-off celebration on Wednesday, August 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Timken Plaza at Legion Keener Park in Latrobe. The bins will be formally presented to LUPR by Coca-Cola and the Keep America Beautiful affiliate Keep Westmoreland County Beautiful, the KAB program arm of Westmoreland Cleanways.
A brief program is planned, to include remarks from Latrobe Mayor and LUPR Commissioner Rosie Wolford and a representative from Coca-Cola. Other invitees include local legislators, City Council and LUPR Commission members, and representatives from the Coca-Cola Distribution Center in Greensburg. Children of all ages can enjoy some fun and informative recycling activities provided by Westmoreland Cleanways and The Coca-Cola Company. Light refreshments, including ice cold Coca-Cola products, will be available.
Latrobe-Unity Parks & Recreation’s application was selected from among hundreds of applications across the country by Keep America Beautiful based on criteria including level of need, recycling experience and the ability to sustain their program in the future. Upon learning of the award, Jeanne Ashley, LUPR Executive Director commented, “We are so fortunate to have received this grant, as our efforts to keep our 200+ acres of Latrobe park facilities clean are challenging. Keeping America Beautiful begins at home in our local communities.”
