Great American Clean-Up and Don't Mess with Texas Trash-Off




We hope you'll join us for our annual litter clean-up of gigantic proportions.  On April 13, 2019 we will be having our yearly clean-up in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful, the Great American Clean-Up 2019!  



The GAC is an annual community effort to banish litter and trash from our parks, schools, streets, and sidewalks.  Every year we pull together from across our Valley community and hold a giant service event that packs up and bags literally tons of trash and removes it from our public spaces.This event is a chance to give back to the community you love and to make it cleaner, better looking, healthier, and safer.  (We're serious!  Did you know litter creates crime?  And that where there is less litter and trash, people tend to be healthier? This year will also feature a contest to bring in the oddest item you picked up along your litter route.  Entries will be judged after the cleanup when all odd items have been brought back to Municipal Park.  The winner will win a very cool prize, plus we will enter photos of the odd item collected in the Keep America Beautiful national contest! For a chance to win nationally! 

Interested yet?  What if we told you we'll feed you lunch, cover your transportation from Municipal Park to the clean-up zones, and give you a free T-shirt?  Oh, and we'll probably have door prizes too.  Click on the Volunteers tab above to register.

Sound cool?
