PHOENIX, April 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Desert Financial Credit Union and Keep Phoenix Beautiful are teaming up to clean up on Earth Day 2021.
Earth lovers can stop by Steele Indian School Park on Thursday, April 22nd for a curbside visit to pick up a free #MyBeautifulPHX cleanup kit. The first 100 do-gooders will also receive a $20 Lowes gift card to buy plants.
Participants are encouraged to beautify their own neighborhoods or a local park by collecting trash, then re-using the kits over and again.
"Random Acts of Kindness help people and bring some cheer," said Jeff Meshey, president and CEO of Desert Financial Credit Union. "This Earth Day Challenge with our friends at Keep Phoenix Beautiful shows our concern for the environment too – which ultimately makes lives better," he added.
Desert Financial has earned distinction as a credit union that cares, with its signature Random Acts of Kindness program. Keep Phoenix Beautiful is a local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. Their shared missions of improving the quality of life in local communities and empowering volunteerism made for a natural partnership on Earth Day.
"People are crazy about trash!" said Cindy Moss, Program Manager at Keep Phoenix Beautiful. "Since we can't gather in groups to volunteer as usual, we knew making the cleanup kits available would encourage individual participation we can still share on social media. It's a great way to get outside, do some good and teach your kids, too."
