Lt. Governor Pamela Evette will kick off the Grab A Bag SC spring campaign at a litter pickup event in Laurens County on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.
Grab A Bag SC encourages citizens to get out into their communities and pick up litter from March 30 through Saturday, April 2, 2022. PalmettoPride is coordinating the statewide campaign on behalf of the Lt. Governor’s Office.
The kickoff on March 30, 2022, will be a media event and a cleanup. PalmettoPride and special event co-hosts Laurens County Chamber and Keep Laurens County Beautiful.
Grab A Bag SC 2022 Kickoff will take place at the Laurens County Airport Torrington Road at 10:00 am.
“Litter prevention is about citizens taking ownership of their neighborhoods and making sure that trash is put in its place before it can become litter,” said Lt. Governor Pamela Evette. “But while there is still litter, we must pick it up. Citizens and governments and business industries all have a part to play in changing the culture.”
Lt. Governor is challenging elected officials to “grab a bag” and coordinate efforts in their districts.
SC Department of Transportation will host their annual spring cleanup to coincide with Grab A Bag.
Joining Lt. Governor and PalmettoPride are Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall, Laurens County Chamber of Commerce President Amanda Munyan. Keep Laurens County Beautiful coordinator Courtney Stonell.
