JE Dunn Construction recently donated $5,000 to “Keep Savannah Clean,” a public-private partnership attempting to cut Savannah’s litter in half through a strategic education and social media outreach initiative.
“JE Dunn’s mission is much more than just constructing great buildings; we see ourselves as a community builder,” said Ryan Price, vice president and division manager, JE Dunn Construction. “Savannah is our home and we are pleased to contribute toward keeping her beautiful.”
The Keep Savannah Clean initiative uses a broad public education effort, citizen engagement through social media, and increased enforcement to target persistent litter. It was created by the City of Savannah, Parker’s convenience stores and the Savannah Morning News, in conjunction with the nonprofit Keep Savannah Beautiful and financial support from more than two dozen local businesses and organizations.
Citizens can join the campaign and win weekly prizes by uploading photos of litter pickup efforts, or photos of those breaking litter laws, to www.keepsavannahclean.com or by using social media and tagging photos with #littercrew.
