What is Love Your Community?

The Love Your Community program is funded by the Mobile County Commission, operated through a partnership with Keep Mobile Beautiful, and engaged with Clean Water Future and Alabama Coastal Heritage Trust. Funding for the program is provided, in part, by the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act (GOMESA). The Love Your Community program is a litter reduction effort spearheaded by District 2 Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson. More than 150 teams are currently participating in Love Your Community litter-reduction activities.

How Does Love Your Community Work?

  • Sign up by registering a team at www.LoveYourCommunity.com  and scheduling ongoing clean-up activities in a defined area of Mobile County as determined by the team. The area can be inside municipal limits or in an unincorporated portion of the County.
  • Request clean-up supplies from Love Your Community, including litter grabbers, vests, gloves, and disposable trash bags from Love Your Community.
  • Conduct ongoing approved activities like litter pick up and disposal, community clean-up efforts, volunteering at recycling centers, or hosting recycling events and beautification projects.
  • Time Bank volunteer hours documenting team activity through www.LoveYourCommunity.com. Volunteer hours are held in the Love Your Community Time Bank and continue to accumulate until requirements allow deposits to be exchanged for grant funding.  
  • Claim grants for beautification projects as the team reaches time-banking hours milestones for grants of $500, $1,000, or $1,500.
  • Document the approved project for which the grant funding was used.
