Made in America – Philanthropy & Cleanup Efforts

Budweiser hosted a Penn’s Landing cleanup on Saturday, August 23rd. Over 300 volunteers joined the cleanup sponsored by BudweiserLiving Lands & Waters and Partnership of the Delaware Estuary including  trash pick-up and storm draining markings.

Volunteers were rewarded with a free ticket to the MIA festival.

This country-wide initiative targeted over 20 communities across the country to preserve and protect lakes and rivers during the summer. In 2013, 1,312 volunteers spent more than 3,000 hours cleaning America’s rivers and lakes as part of the program.

Plus, the Philadelphia Made in America concert includes a Cause Village Vendor, to focus on local nonprofits and causes for festival-goers to become involved with.

Cause Village Vendors: Shawn Carter Foundation, United Way, Headcount/NAACP, Budweiser Veterans, Donda House (Kanye West’s charity), St. Jude Hospital (Kings of Leon supported charity), Partners in Health (The National), World Childhood Foundation (Tiesto), Philly Paws, Drive Change, Born this Way Foundation, Why Hunger, Mural Arts
