Sponsors, volunteers and performers are needed for the 4th Annual Pearland Clean & Green event on April 6, at the Pearland Town Center. This is the city’s biggest grassroots clean up activity.
The popular Spring event is hosted by Keep Pearland Beautiful, in partnership with Shadow Creek Outdoors Club.
The event will begin with a litter cleanup from 8 to 9:30 a.m. The community will gather at the Pearland Town Center Pavilion from 9:30 to 11 a.m. for activities, entertainment and educational displays.
Also at this event, residents can bring documents for onsite shredding and can also dispose of their electronics. Kids get treats and rewarded for cleaning up and a fun interactive workshop on recycling will be held.
The event is free to the public.
Clean & Green began in 2016 as a community “call to action” for Shadow Creek Ranch residents to clean up litter and learn about “green” initiatives. The event centered around the three R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
As one of the largest Master Planned Communities in this region, residents of Shadow Creek Ranch take pride in keeping a clean community, according to KPB officials.
The event has expanded over the years to draw in residents from across the area.
To register online to be a sponsor for underwriting, a volunteer or a performer, go to the KPB Facebook page or to www.keeppearlandbeautiful.org.
Pearland Town Center is located at11200 Broadway St. in Pearland.
