Whereas, "Pride Week" is sponsored annually in Charleston to call attention to the continuing need to clean up and improve the environment; and
Whereas, the Charleston County Community Improvement and Beautification Committee was organized by Clemson University Extension Service in 1966 at the request of the Governor's Beautification and Community Improvement Board as part of a statewide program; the name was shortened in 1971 to Charleston Pride, Inc., and incorporated as an eleemosynary organization; the name was changed again in 1986 to Community Pride of Charleston County, Inc., so as to more adequately reflect the organization's activities; and
Whereas, the purposes of the organization are threefold:
(1) inspire a united effort throughout the county in combatting ugliness and promoting environmental improvement;
(2) provide ideas and information to organizations and communities for programs and projects;
(3) sustain interest and support continued activity on the part of all citizens and organizations to improve the environment in Charleston County; and
Whereas, PRIDE'S projects have included abandoned car pick-up, beautification, Charleston Mini Parks, Inc., Children's gardening for recreation, countywide and target area cleanups, recycling, anti-litter drives, Adopt-a-Highway, and promoting a concern for environmental protection laws; and
Whereas, in 1995, the Charleston County Adopt-a-Highway Program utilized 1,391 volunteers who expended 5,771 volunteer hours in collecting 91,460 pounds of trash; and
Whereas, the Week of April 8-13, 1996 has been scheduled as the 1996 Pride Week; and
Whereas, PRIDE has rendered invaluable service over the years to the community, and the work and accomplishments of this exemplary organization are highly deserving of recognition and commendation. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, recognizes Community Pride of Charleston County, Inc., and commends this organization and Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service for their outstanding efforts to instill pride in local citizens for a clean and healthy environment.
