Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful nominated for IMPACT Regional Business Award

Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful has been nominated for the second year in a row for Gwinnett Chamber’s IMPACT Regional Business Award. The nomination comes on the heels of the non-profit being named Best of Gwinnett 2018 in the Charitable Organizations category, as well as being recognized with both a Governor’s Circle Award from the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation and a President’s Circle Award from Keep America Beautiful. The IMPACT Regional Business Award program recognizes organizations that are driving economic development and job creation, while enhancing quality of life.

“While our connection to the ‘quality of life’ aspect of this award is clear, you might not believe that a nonprofit organization could have a hand in economic development. However, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and our programs are all geared towards the creation of a cleaner, greener, more beautiful Gwinnett County. A litter-free, graffiti-free and sustainable community is highly attractive to corporations considering placing their headquarters or a hub here in Gwinnett,” said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful.

The awards ceremony will be held 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 8 at the Infinite Energy Forum.
