to Beautify the Florence Community
Our mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community.
What We Do
Keep Florence Beautiful is a 501C3 organization based in Florence, South Carolina. Our goal is to organize programs and empower citizens through volunteer opportunities to beautify and naturally clean our environment. These programs and opportunities include community cleanups; responsible consumerism; source reduction, reuse and recycling; community gardens; restoration of vacant lots; highway and shoreline beautification; urban forests, native and wildflower plantings; and graffiti prevention and abatement.
We work to identify and reduce litter by organizing community cleanups.
We establish community gardens that provide access to fresh produce for local neighborhoods.
We educate the public on how to recycle, responsible consumerism, and source reduction.
