Keeping Durham Beautiful

Durham is committed to keeping Durham beautiful. Non-profits such as Preservation Durham and Keep Durham Beautiful were created in the interest of maintaining Durham's historic charm and enhancing the Bull City's appearance. The success of such organizations is closely tied to volunteerism, collaboration with local businesses, partnerships with local government and charitable giving.  Fortunately, progress is being made on that front.

Keep Durham Beautiful recently announced a history-making $10,000 grant from the Family Fare Convenience Stores' BP Fueling Communities Program. The program provides grants to local organizations that are nominated by BP’s Branded Marketers to support the communities in which they do business.  

Charitable donations, whether monetary or in volunteer hours, are crucial to the health of this community. Kudos to Family Fare Convenience Stores, Keep Durham Beautiful, Preservation Durham and to all the organizations and individuals who are keeping Durham beautiful.
