SPE Cares Initiative: Galveston Beach Clean-Up

 

We need your help!

Come join the SPE-GCS Community Services Committee & SPE-GCS Young Professionals in the SPE Cares Initiative to make an impactful difference within our environment by cleaning up Galveston beaches. Last year, more than 21 tons of trash was collected by the Clean Galveston Volunteers.

Each volunteer will be given data cards, safety gloves, pencils and trash bags. Debris source and type will be recorded and discarded appropriately. All volunteers are advised to dress comfortably, wear closed-toe shoes, and bring sunscreen, hats, bug repellant and plenty of drinking water.

Feel free to bring family members or non-SPE-GCS friends! Breakfast and SPE-GCS volunteer shirts will be provided.

The Community Services Committee officers & YPs will reach out to you a week prior to the event with additional details about how we will meet up with our Galveston Beach Clean-Up group.

Drivers will be able to log the hours spent driving to Galveston and back for the community service competition. If you can help carpool, please sign up at the link below and confirm how many volunteers you can take (not including yourself):
