Keep Covington Beautiful has been selected by the local Olive Garden Restaurant to receive a $1,000 grant as part of the Restaurant Community Grants program from the Darden Restaurants Foundation, the charitable arm of Darden Restaurants. The annual grants program empowers each restaurant location to help award a $1,000 grant to support local community programs.
“We’re proud to be able to support Keep Covington Beautiful through our Restaurant Community Grants program,” said Stephanie Ghertner, Director of the Darden Foundation. “Our team members are incredibly passionate about getting involved in their local communities, and this program enables them to do just that.”
The donation will enable Keep Covington Beautiful to improve and expand the Blue Swamp Creek Nature Trail located at the Covington Recreation Complex. Keep Covington Beautiful is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to the beautification of the city of Covington. By developing broad-based community partnerships, KCB encourages all citizens to take greater responsibility for improving the community through positive behavior. KCB’s projects focus on beautification, including biannual planting of the downtown street-side planters, litter prevention and recycling activities and environmental education.
