Keep Nassau Beautiful’s youngest Adopt Partner celebrates one-year anniversary
Yulee, Florida, November 4, 2021 – Hudson is a tenacious 5-year-old who is learning the value of a clean, green and beautiful environment, and the personal benefit of volunteerism. Under the leadership of his grandmother, Barb Burk, Hudson’s Litter Gitters was formed in the fall of 2020. Hudson shares his experience and encourages others to help save the animals by cleaning up the environment. In only one year he has 329 followers on his Facebook group and has had people from 8 countries and 29 states post their litter collection pictures.
Hudson’s local volunteer group, Hudson’s Litter Gitters, recently completed their Adopt A Spot litter pick-up at Holly Point boat ramp and afterwards celebrated their one-year anniversary with a cake from Nana Teresa’s.
“Hudson’s family is setting such a splendid example by modeling behavior that leads Hudson to understand the benefit and rewards of good environmental stewardship,” said Lynda Bell, Keep Nassau Beautiful Executive Director. “Thank you Hudson and Hudson’s Litter Gitters!”
Keep Nassau Beautiful champions the support of business, industry, civic, youth, religious groups, and individuals, in controlling the litter problem by adopting sections of roadway, or shared access areas such as parks, ball fields and trails, or sections of shoreline in Nassau County for cleanup events.
