VOLUNTEER GROUPS NEEDED TO CLEAN LA MARQUE ROADSIDES

Millions of pieces of litter accumulate on American roadways each year, which means we need your help! Volunteer groups are needed to clean up ditches, parks and known dumping areas during the Great American Cleanup Saturday, April 6, 2019. Groups will meet in the La Marque Community Room and be provided with materials including gloves, safety vests, trash bags and bug spray. A contest for most bags of trash collected is planned. To participate, call Kierra Nance at 409-938-9225. 

Get a group together, choose a location on the city map and help us clean the city April 6!
