Keep Victoria Beautiful received a $1,500 donation from LyondellBasell to be used for beautification grants.
“We are thankful for LyondellBasell’s support of Keep Victoria Beautiful’s mission of helping Victoria residents beautify their community,” said Christy Youker, community appearance manager for the City of Victoria. “If a community member has an idea for a beautification project at their business or nonprofit, we can help them make it a reality.”
