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.

Youker hopes that hosting a cleanup across Victoria will bring residents together and spark interest in the cleanups that KVB hosts year-round.

“We’re trying to cultivate a sense of pride and empower residents to take responsibility for their community,” Youker said.

Residents can visit www.victoriatx.gov/kvb to request assistance with organizing a cleanup at a specific time and place (KVB Clean Sweep), ask to be matched with an event (KVB Spruce Up) or sign up for the general volunteer list to be notified of future cleanups.
