(IRVING, TEXAS)— On Oct. 14, Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) welcomed 10 employee volunteers from the Irving Gartner, Inc. office to Bird’s Fort Trail Park, 5756 Riverside Drive, for a cleanup project. The group gave 20 hours of volunteer service by collecting litter along the tree line between the Campion Trail and the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. 

 

After the cleanup, volunteers assisted with the weighing of all bags collected, with a total of 59 pounds of trash and recyclables which were prevented from reaching the waterway. Irving Parks and Recreation Department staff also collected the bags after they had been weighed.

 

“Keep Irving Beautiful is happy to welcome a new partner in Gartner” said KIB board member Rachel Moon. “We are so fortunate to have such an active, engaged corporate community here in Irving, with companies that place a high priority on giving back.  These employee volunteers did a great job today, and we hope to work with them again.”
