April 6, 2021 – Shelton State Community College student organizations are doing their part to keep Alabama clean! In partnership with the 2021 Statewide “Don’t Drop It on Alabama” Spring Cleanup, the College’s students are spending Fridays in April beautifying the Martin and Fredd Campuses.
The cleanup is held annually and coordinated by Alabama PALS (People Against a Littered State), which also coordinates and implements the Alabama Coastal Cleanup (partnership with ADCNR), the Alabama Clean Campus Program, the Alabama Adopt A Mile and Adopt A Stream programs (partnership with ALDOT) statewide. Each of these efforts are made possible through partnerships with business and industry, state associations, and state agencies that are committed to making Alabama a leader in environmental volunteerism and awareness. The “Don’t Drop It on Alabama” Spring Cleanup is offered to all 67 Alabama counties and statewide volunteer groups.
This year’s participating student organizations from SSCC include Ambassadors, Health Information Technology, Psi Beta, and Shelton State Association of Respiratory Care Students.
Alabama PALS is proud of their partnership with the Alabama Community College Systems campuses for the 2021 statewide cleanup effort. Spencer Ryan, Executive Vice President of Alabama PALS, stated, “We are extremely proud of the commitment from the Alabama Community College System, and appreciate the dedication form the ACCS, as well as the enthusiasm displayed from each ACCS campus and leadership team.”
PALS distributed approximately 175,000 bags statewide for the 2021 cleanup, as well as all materials and supplies to participating cities, counties, and volunteer groups. For more information, visit alpals.org.
