Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the country’s largest community improvement program that kicks off each spring and engages more than 4 million volunteers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide, according to an announcement.

Keep the Hawaiian Islands Beautiful calls upon businesses, school groups, community organizations and individuals throughout the Hawaiian islands to join this national effort to beautify parks, trails and recreation areas, clean shorelines and waterways, reduce waste and increase recycling, remove litter and debris, plant trees and build community gardens, among other events to inspire generations of environmental stewards.

McDonald’s of Hawai’i is partnering with Keep the Hawaiian Islands Beautiful by providing a coupon for a free sandwich for 6,000 volunteers in Hawaii.
