  • KSB Receives $10,000 KAB/UPS Foundation Grant
    Posted on: 2011-06-28
    $10,000 grant will be used to landscape the Slidell Senior Citizen’s Center

    Keep Slidell Beautiful (KSB) recently received a $10,000 grant from the UPS Foundation as part of the Keep America Beautiful /UPS Foundation Community Improvement Grant Program. This grant program – which is supporting initiatives across the country – addresses recycling, litter prevention, waste reduction, beautification and community greening.

    The grant awards were presented to Keep America Beautiful (KAB) affiliates in recognition of their volunteer initiatives with local UPS locations throughout the United States. UPS employee volunteers will actively support many of these merit-based award programs in their respective communities. KSB was one of thirteen KAB affiliates to receive a $10,000 grant, and will use the funds to spearhead the Slidell Senior Citizens Center Landscaping Project.

    “When I realized there was no funding for landscaping the new center, I took the matter to the KSB Board and asked them to make this our major project for 2011,” said Bill Mauser, Executive Director of Keep Slidell Beautiful. The board unanimously agreed.

    The Senior Citizens Center Landscaping Project will provide landscaping at the Senior Center, including trees, shrubs, pavilion, walking paths, benches, and raised handicap accessible planters. KSB will also form a Senior Citizens Green Team that will be trained by local Master Gardeners. This will provide a means for seniors to enjoy the outdoors, engage in gardening activities and staying physically active.

    “The UPS Foundation is a leader in supporting and initiating volunteer engagement throughout the country,” said Matthew M. McKenna, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful. “Keep America Beautiful values this partnership because we know our affiliates will make significant and sustainable differences in their respective communities with the help of these grants.”

    “The local affiliates of Keep America Beautiful continue to come up with creative approaches to addressing environmental challenges,” said Ken Sternad, president of The UPS Foundation. “UPS and our employees are proud to see it happen and stand ready to support projects that improve the communities where we live and work.”

    KSB partnered with several organizations for this project, including the City of Slidell, Council on Aging St. Tammany (COAST), The East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce Leadership Slidell Class, Green Team School groups, Louisiana Master Gardeners, Ozone Camellia Club, Slidell Police Department and the Slidell Tree Board.

    Hearing that KSB had received a $10,000 grant for the landscaping project, Slidell City Council President Landon Cusimano remarked, “That’s wonderful and it’s such a very worthwhile project. I know our senior citizens will appreciate it.”

    “I would like to thank the UPS Foundation for their generous donation to Keep Slidell Beautiful,” said Slidell Mayor Freddy Drennan. “Bill Mauser and the KSB volunteers do a great job keeping our city clean and the City of Slidell benefits greatly from their hard work and dedication.”

    Keep Slidell Beautiful is also accepting donations to help complete the project. Please send donations to Senior Citizens Project, P. O. Box 828, Slidell, LA  70459. For more information, please call Bill Mauser at (985) 265-5029 or visit the KSB website at www.keepslidellbeautiful.org.
