Mount Pleasant, SC –August 28, 2013-- Beach Sweep / River Sweep organized by S.C.

On Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. thousands of South Carolinians will volunteer to clear trash from our beaches, rivers, and marshes.

Anyone can help; including businesses, civic clubs, recreation clubs, individuals, families, school groups, church groups, and youth groups.
