Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful believes that by engaging volunteers, we extend the reach of our educational efforts and multiply the impact of our actions.

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s “Affiliate Volunteers of the Year Program” is a recognition program for KPB and local KAB Affiliates. Through this statewide program, each affiliate can honor an outstanding volunteer.

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s 2017 Affiliate Volunteers of the Year!


Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful –
George Conrad first volunteered with Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful in 2006 when they tackled the Alexandria Pike dumpsites cleanup, helping to remove over 16 tons of trash from the roadway. Since then, George, a runner, has kept his eyes open for active dump sites and cleanup opportunities. He has also participated in all 5 years of the Juniata River Cleanup, hosted by Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful, where volunteers remove trash by kayak/canoe from the county’s largest river each August. “George is a very active community member, and his leadership, good nature, friendliness, and effort are all assets to our organization. We are pleased to nominate him for our Volunteer of the Year Award,” stated Stacia-Fe Gillen, Coordinator of Keep Huntingdon County Beautiful.



Keep Perry County Beautiful –
Brandon Yourth is named volunteer of the year by Keep Perry County Beautiful. Brandon attends Carson Long Military Academy in New Bloomfield, PA. He has been an active member of Keep Perry County Beautiful since spring 2016, participating in cleanups, tire collections and recycling events. “He is kind and polite to everyone he meets and is always willing to jump in and help someone when they need it; whether it’s unloading a resident’s vehicle or climbing on to a truck bed and slinging tires. Brandon is a hard worker and doesn’t give up until the job is done,” said Kristie Smith, Coordinator of Keep Perry County Beautiful.
