(Chester County, PA) At this week’s public meeting, the Chester County Commissioners presented Beth Intoccia of Litter Lifters of West Vincent Township with a citation, recognizing her as a Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Affiliate Volunteer of the Year.
Beth was nominated for the award by Keep Chester County Beautiful – Chester County’s affiliate of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful – for her dedication and passion towards helping the environment. “While everyone was hunkering down during the pandemic back in 2020, Beth started a litter removal group,” noted Chester County’s Sustainability Director, Rachael Griffith. “When she sees a need in her community, she doesn’t wait around for someone else to take care of it – she does it herself.”
In their citation for Beth, the Commissioners noted the accomplishments that earned her the statewide award, including founding Litter Lifters of West Vincent Township (which has, in just two years, removed more than 1,000 bags of litter from roadways and streams), and advocating for a Keep PA Beautiful affiliate in Chester County.
The Commissioners’ citation notes, “Without Beth’s drive, determination, and guidance, the Keep Chester County Beautiful affiliate would not exist today. Chester County is grateful for Beth’s love of nature and of making communities stronger, cleaner, and better places to live.”
