KWB Seeks 2015 Sponsors and Business Friends

Keep Whitehouse Beautiful is a 501[c][3] non-profit volunteer organization whose mission is empowering individuals to make a difference in their community through beautification, education, and solid waste practices. Our volunteer work is always needed and never finished. With the support of our business friends and sponsors we are able to keep Whitehouse a beautiful place to live and work.
Keep Whitehouse Beautiful has accomplished much and continues to do so with your help. 14718117955_3e3e058395_k
With your assistance:
• KWB provides community education in multiple settings on littering and responsible ways to reduce resources used, reuse where possible, and recycle as a final resort before disposing. The “Don’t Mess With Texas Trash-Off”, the annual road litter pick-up and the annual City-Wide Garage Sale have become community events.
• KWB has been honored five times by Keep Texas Beautiful as a winner of the Governor’s Community Achievement Award. With those funds TXDOT has completed projects including: landscaping and fencing in front of City Park and crepe myrtles along 346; benches and landscaping at the corners of 346 and 110; sidewalks along 110 and 346; and two Whitehouse entry signs.
• KWB awards a grant each school year to one of the campuses in Whitehouse ISD for a beautification project.
• KWB completed the Wildscape in front of the Whitehouse Recycle Center. This teaching tool and beautification project showcases plants that are native to the region, drought tolerant, and therefore, easy to grow in our area.
• KWB added 92 roses to the City flower beds at the corners of 346 and 110.
• KWB volunteers attend trainings to deliver the quality of program for which KWB is known.
• Keep Whitehouse Beautiful networks with several City committees and community groups on issues of mutual interest.
Please join us in supporting our mission and empowering individuals to grassroots service in our community with your tax-deductible contribution. We hope you will choose to become a Business Friend or Sponsor for 2015.  Sponsor levels range from $2000 to $500, and business friends are $50.
