Participants are encouraged to beautify their own neighborhood or a local park by picking up litter and then reusing the kits over and over again.
âRandom acts of kindness help people and bring a little bit of joy,â said Jeff Meshey, President and CEO of Desert Financial Credit Union. âThis Earth Day challenge with our friends at Keep Phoenix Beautiful also shows our concern for the environment – which ultimately improves lives,â he added.
Desert Financial has distinguished itself as a caring credit union with its Random Acts of Kindness signature program. Keep Phoenix Beautiful is a local affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. Their shared missions to improve the quality of life in local communities and empower volunteerism have been a natural partnership on Earth Day.
âPeople are crazy about garbage! ” noted Cindy moss, program manager at Keep Phoenix Beautiful. âSince we can’t come together in groups to volunteer as usual, we knew that making the cleaning kits available would encourage individual participation which we can always share on social media. It’s a great way to get out, do some good, and teach your kids too. . “
