Keep Victoria Beautiful to hold Fall Sweep: Christy Youker, City of Victoria environmental and beautification coordinator

VICTORIA, Texas – If you are interested in being apart of a community clean-up, student groups, local business, congregations and interested individuals are invited to attend the Fall Sweep. Keep Victoria Beautiful’s first citywide cleanup will take place on Sept. 25 from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.

“We want this to be our biggest cleanup yet,” said Christy Youker, City of Victoria environmental and beautification coordinator. “Regardless of your group size, and even if you don’t have a group, we encourage you to come out and make a difference.”

You can register for this event by visiting www.victoriatx.gov/kvb. Volunteers will meet at the Target parking lot, located at 7608 Zac Lentz Parkway. Depending on the number of registrations, other locations will be determined at a later date.

There will be donuts and cleaning supplies, including safety vests, provided by KVB.

Youker hopes the 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.

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