It was his upbringing that gave Alan Donn a desire to keep the environment clean and beautiful.
The volunteer’s efforts over more than 25 years with his wife, Dorothy Holle, co-workers and other community members have resulted in the removal of almost 190,000 pounds of litter and debris from entering local waterways.
His dedication also resulted in the top national award from Keep America Beautiful — the 2018 Iron Eyes Cody Award, presented in February at the Keep America Beautiful National Conference in Baltimore. It is named after the actor who portrayed a Native American in an iconic 1971 public service announcement who shed a tear over America’s rampant littering.
