PalmettoPride’s Palmetto Patriot’s Pickup Challenge

The challenge is on! PalmettoPride has kicked off a new litter pickup campaign that challenges every South Carolinian to help complete the Palmetto Patriot’s Pickup—a 21-mile litter pickup effort that started on July 4 (Independence Day) and runs through Sunday, November 11 (Veterans Day). The goal of the Palmetto Patriot’s Pickup is to complete a beautification project designed to honor current and former military members and their families, showing pride for local communities throughout the Palmetto State.

Individuals and teams are welcome to choose their campaign pickup miles—whether it is 21 consecutive miles or 1 mile serviced 21 times. Each participating group or individual is asked to keep track of the miles serviced on a form received after sign up. Pickup challenge supplies will be provided by PalmettoPride upon request. The first 21 individuals or team leaders to complete the challenge will receive a custom Rugged American Flag and be entered for a grand prize drawing to be awarded in November. All forms must be completed and submitted by November 11 to be entered to win.

“PalmettoPride has worked with our military bases and ROTC groups for years. This new challenge seeks to bring awareness to the litter in our beautiful state while supporting our military community,” says Sarah Lyles, executive director of PalmettoPride.
