Keep Golden Isles Beautiful Awarded $15K Wells Fargo Grant

BRUNSWICK, GA - (October 27, 2022) – Keep Golden Isles Beautiful has been awarded a $15,000 grant from Wells Fargo that will fund three Golden Isles area clean and green projects.

The grant will allow the nonprofit to replace a pelican litter prevention sculpture in downtown Brunswick’s Mary Ross Park. It will also fund a new Brunswick Mobile Gardens project that will provide bucket gardens to qualifying city residents who are 65 years or older and will fund the Stash Boat Trash program, which outfits boaters with mesh garbage bags to prevent boat-related litter and marine debris.

“We are beyond thrilled to be named a Wells Fargo grant recipient,” said Keep Golden Isles Beautiful executive director Lea King-Badyna. “These three exciting and beneficial projects would not be possible without this grant funding.”

“I love volunteering with Keep Golden Isles Beautiful,” said Wells Fargo regional banking manager Dwain Walcott. “The nonprofit’s mission to keep Georgia clean, green and beautiful aligns with Wells Fargo’s mission to integrate sustainability across our business for our customers and our communities. We are excited about the positive community impacts these projects will bring to coastal Georgia.”
