CARTA and the City of Charleston's Keep Charleston Beautiful will hold a kickoff event on Thursday, May 15, at 11:30 p.m. at Sanders Clyde Creative Arts School (805 Morrison Drive, Charleston, South Carolina) for a new Adopt-a-Stop program that will provide individuals and groups of volunteers with the opportunity to remove trash from select, uncovered CARTA bus stops in the Charleston city limits on a weekly basis. Trash cans hand-painted by local students will be placed at the stops, along with signs recognizing responsible volunteers. Charleston Mayor Joe Riley and other local officials will be in attendance at the event, which will mark another step in creating a litter-free community.
Special guests include Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, Keep Charleston Beautiful Program Manager Jennifer Scales and CARTA Executive Director Christine Wilkinson.
