Great American Cleanup and Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off

April 13 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

The Great American Cleanup is our yearly clean-up in conjunction with Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful. It 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. 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 pictures of the odd items have been turned in at 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! We are providing lunch, transportation from Municipal Park to the clean-up zones, free T-shirt, and cleanup supplies. We will also have door prizes too. If you need community service hours for school, work, or an organization you can join us and earn 4 hours. Come out with your school, your club, your class, your family, and your friends!  Make this place better with us, together, we are making a difference.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE REGISTERING AS A GROUP….EACH VOLUNTEER MUST SIGN UP INDIVIDUALLY.
