Keep Irving Beautiful invites the community to attend the 23rd Annual Trash Bash on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 9 a.m. to noon. The location for this year’s event is T.W. Richardson Grove Park, 333 E. Interstate Highway 635 (LBJ), at the northeast corner of Valley View and I-635. The cleanup is once again being held on National Public Lands Day, and will be one of many similar events occurring across the country that day. The nation’s largest single-day volunteer event for public lands raises awareness of environmental issues like litter, and encourages everyone to lend a hand to make a difference in their community. Volunteers of all ages are invited to participate. KIB will provide supplies such as litter pickers, trash and recycle bags and gloves. Lunch will be provided after the cleanup, as well as music and prize drawings.
This Trash Bash will also include a canned food drive to help feed those in our community who are in need. Each volunteer is asked to bring a canned or other non-perishable food item to the event. These will be donated to the Bear Creek Community Church Food Pantry at 2700 Finley Road, Irving 75062.
