Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) has recognized Keep Aransas County Beautiful (KACB) as a recipient of a 2021 Dos Equis Waterways Cleanup Month Grant.
With support from Dos Equis, these grants provide five selected affiliate communities with funding for beautification and cleanup projects that improve Texas waterways and water quality.
KTB hosts Waterways Cleanup Month during the Great American Cleanup, which runs from March to May each year, to encourage Texans to learn more about the importance of preventing litter from reaching waterways and encourage participation in waterway cleanups. Dos Equis offered this grant to enhance KTB’s efforts and support affiliates working to make Texas waterways clean and beautiful.
KACB plans to use funds to cleanup under the north and south sides of Copano Bay Bridge and will receive $500 to host a party celebrating the county. KTB will also provide additional social media and marketing support to ensure the success of the project.
In addition to Aransas County, the affiliate communities of San Marcos, Canyon Lake, Angelina County and Waco also received a Dos Equis Waterways Cleanup Month Grant.
“We are thankful for sponsors like Dos Equis who support our efforts to clean and beautify waterways across Texas,” said Executive Director of KTB Suzanne Kho. “We cannot wait to see the projects our affiliates are able to complete with help from the grant.”
