Volunteers needed: Keep Charleston Beautiful

Keep Charleston Beautiful

is in need of volunteers to dress as our pelican mascot, Clara. Keep Charleston Beautiful and Clara travel to local elementary schools, teaching groups of students about recycling and good waste responsibility. Volunteers dress as Clara and make short appearances periodically during the program. The programs last about 45 minutes and there are no lines to learn! Volunteers receive a gift card or volunteer t-shirt, and transportation to the schools can be arranged.


Since Earth Day is right around the corner, April is a busy month for programs.


We are looking for volunteers for the following dates:

April 11th 9:00  

April 12th 9:00

April 15th 2:00

April 16th 1:30

April 17th 12:45-2:45 (two programs)

April 19th 8:30

April 22nd 8:30-10:00 and 1:30-3:00 (two set of programs)

April 23rd 8:30-10:30 (two programs)
