CLEARCorps/ Detroit reduces lead levels in 100th house. (Fresh Paint).
CLEARCorps/Detroit and its founding sponsor, BASF Corporation, celebrated this achievement at a special event commemorating the 100th Detroit house in which lead hazards have been reduced. Held Oct. 14, at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Detroit, the event also recognized the contribution of partners who have supported the efforts of CLEARCorps/Detroit. Special CLEARCorps/Detroit "Getting the Lead Out" Community Champion Awards were given to U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, BASF Corp. and the Detroit Health Department. In addition, 18 CLEARCorps/Detroit AmeriCorps members from the community were recognized for their contributions.
CLEARCorps' efforts have not gone unnoticed. On Oct. 8, the National Paint and Coatings Association (NPCA) received the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) Summit Award--the association's highest honor in the Associations Advance America Awards (AAA) program--for CLEARCorps, its joint initiative with the Shriver Center at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
The AAA Awards recognize associations and industry partners that advance U.S. society with innovative programs in education, skills training, standard setting and social innovation, knowledge creation, citizenship and community service.
