On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, Alabama People Against A Littered State (ALPALS) selected the Anniston Changers as their recipient of the 2022 Don Hines Memorial Award at its annual State Governor’s award ceremony in Montgomery.
This award is ALPALS’s highest honor, named after former ALPALS Chairman, Don Hines.
The award recognizes outstanding community efforts in litter clean-up, prevention, and education.
Since its formation in October 2020, the Anniston Changers have conducted 25 consecutive monthly service projects all throughout the City of Anniston, cleaning up over 45 tons of litter and debris.
City leadership and the Anniston Changers board would like to dedicate this award to the 320+ citizens who have volunteered their time, passion, and support to the mission of the Anniston Changers over the course of their 25 consecutive monthly service projects! The volunteers make the change happen, and without their hard work this recognition would not have been possible.
