Volunteers needed for Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup

(AUSTIN, Texas)  — Volunteers are needed for the nation’s biggest all-volunteer coastal cleanup Saturday, April 26.

The 2014 Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup takes place at 31 of Texas’ most popular tourist beaches. Volunteers can sign up online at www.texasadoptabeach.org to take part in a fun-filled day at the beach that makes a difference.

“Thousands of Texans sign up for the Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup every year because it’s a great day at the beach,” said Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson.  “If you care about the Texas coast, join us at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 26.”

Each volunteer will be given data cards, gloves, pencils and trash bags. All volunteers are advised to wear closed-toe shoes, bring sunscreen and plenty of drinking water.  The Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Cleanups are held rain or shine!

Texans who are not able to attend the cleanup can help keep their beaches clean by making a tax-deductible donation online at www.TexasAdoptABeach.org. There are several different Adopt-A-Beach sponsorship levels ranging from $25 to $25,000, allowing both individuals and corporations to contribute to this major cleanup effort.

Shell Oil Company is the lead statewide sponsor for the 28th Texas General Land Office Adopt-A-Beach Spring Cleanup. Other sponsors include HNTB, Halliburton, Apache Corporation, Keep Texas Beautiful, Schlumberger, SeaWorld San Antonio, Siemens Caring Hands Foundation, Trusted Senior Specialists and Corona Del Mar Properties.
