Volunteer Spotlight: Ron Aldridge

Affiliate directors in Mississippi describe Ron Aldridge as the “hardest working volunteer,” “enthusiastic,” and “a joy to have around.” Ron is critical to Keep America Beautiful’s network in Mississippi. Ron is Keep Mississippi Beautiful’s (KMB) go-to person, serving both on our board of directors and as a loyal volunteer. He aids KMB in many ways, helping us secure in-kind and monetary donations for events, especially our big Great American Cleanup State Kickoff each year, as well as rallying volunteers during events with his warm personality and his roll-up-his-sleeves approach. Ron was a huge asset at our State Kickoff this past year, where we transformed a forgotten park into a community jewel. He helped put up new basketball goals, loves getting his hands dirty and does a great job of inspiring volunteers. Mississippi is blessed to have Ron Aldridge, who works tirelessly to advance cleaning, greening and beautification efforts in Mississippi. Ron’s leadership and volunteer efforts help KMB and local KAB affiliates serve their communities, enabling them to have broader impacts in their work.
