Student groups, local businesses, congregations and interested individuals who’d like to be a part of cleaning up their community are invited to attend Keep Victoria Beautiful’s third annual citywide Fall Sweep 7:30-9:30 a.m. Sept. 9.
To register for the event, visit www.victoriatx.gov/kvb. Volunteers will meet at the Target parking lot, 7608 Zac Lentz Parkway, and other locations that will be determined based on the number of registrations.
“Our citywide cleanups are a great way for people to come together for a couple of hours and really make a difference,” said Christy Youker, assistant director of the City of Victoria Environmental Services and executive director of Keep Victoria Beautiful. “Regardless of your group size, and even if you don’t have a group, we encourage you to come volunteer so we can add more locations to the cleanup.”
KVB will provide gloves, bags and safety vests. Volunteers should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.
Breakfast will be provided by The Chopping Block immediately following the cleanup.
Other sponsors for the event are H-E-B, Victoria Television Group, Townsquare Media, Republic Services and Del Papa Distributing.
Also on Sept. 9, Flow Paddle Co will host a cleanup on the Guadalupe River in Riverside Park. Anyone with a kayak is welcome to join.
