Join KWB as a Sponsor or Business Friend in 2018! – Details below

Keep Whitehouse Beautiful (KWB),invites you to participate as a sponsor to help support our continuing efforts in making Whitehouse a more beautiful place to work and live.  KWB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and 100% volunteer organization. We are your local affiliate of the Keep Texas Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful organizations.


Past donations have helped support KWB programs for landscaping, school projects, scholarships, community awards, education (i.e., recycling, environment, litter prevention), and our largest event: the annual ‘Trash-Off’ litter pick-up program.  The 2017 ‘Trash-Off’ event had nearly 190 participants picking up litter throughout Whitehouse!  Fun day, with lots of team spirit!  For 2018, KWB programs include continuing our litter prevention programs, beautification, environmental & educational projects, and supporting the annual ‘Trash-Off’ event.  We are partnering with the City for a greater emphasis on Parks.  We have already had a major cleanup project at Gardenview Park.  This partnership is currently working on an exciting new bike and hiking trail project for 2018.  KWB will provide updates on this project as they develop on our Facebook page.


KWB has also been a leader in many large Whitehouse capital projects.  KWB has applied for available grants and the Governor’s Community Achievement Award (GCAA).  Keep Texas Beautiful, in partnership with TXDOT, awards the GCAA to 10 Texas communities each year.  KWB has received this highly competitive award a record six times! These awards have provided Whitehouse more than $500,000 in capital improvements. These projects included the City stone entrance signs, rock column fencing in front of City Park, larger landscaping additions, City benches, sidewalks and the Brown Elementary rock wall planters.  In 2018 a new sidewalk near Cain Elementary will be constructed and funded by this effort.


Your generous contribution will help us continue to enhance the charm of our Whitehouse community.  Thank you in supporting our mission with your tax-deductible donation.  Together we can take actions to Keep Whitehouse Beautiful!   Please mark your calendars to join us and on April 14 for our annual “Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off” event.

Community cleanup day at Gardenview Park for Saturday, January 20th, 2018


We are having a community cleanup day at Gardenview Park (corner of Gardenview St. and Hillcrest Drive) in Whitehouse on Saturday, January 20th.  The event is sponsored by the City of Whitehouse and Keep Whitehouse Beautiful.   The City is providing the chainsaw and chipper crews but we need volunteers to help pick up limbs and do general raking, litter removal etc.  The event will be from 8:30 am until 3 pm.  Please bring work gloves and wear long sleeves and pants. If you have them, rakes and some wheel barrows would be helpful.   High School age children are welcome!

Free grilled lunch is provided and will be cooked at the Park by Republic Services!
