Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is pleased to announce the 29th Annual Community Trash-Off to be held on Saturday, February 24, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This beautification initiative for the Orange community serves Shangri La's mission to encourage others to "Be Kind to Your World." This event is generously sponsored by Dow. Participants are encouraged to complete free online registration for their teams at shangrilagardens.org.
The morning of Community Trash-Off begins at the City of Orange Riverside Pavilion, located at 709 Simmons Drive. Teams will gather to pick up their special event t-shirts, prepare for an exciting day ahead and then disperse to their clean-up locations.
"Trash-Off presents a unique opportunity for members of the Orange community to unite and work together for a common goal. We invite our neighbors to lend a helping hand in making Orange a cleaner place to live and work. It is our hope that participants leave this event with a sense of pride in our wonderful community that continually showcases its resilience," said Katie Krantz, associate director of Shangri La.
Teams can expect to build camaraderie by working together to clean trash from neighborhoods and waterways. The event culminates with a free pizza party for all participants.
"We express our deepest gratitude to Dow for supporting Community Trash-Off this year as our presenting sponsor. We also appreciate Mayor Larry Spears, City of Orange staff and other volunteers whose contributions help leave a lasting impact on our community," said Krantz.
Shangri La Gardens and Nature Center is located at 2111 West Park Avenue in Orange, Texas. For more information about Community Trash-Off, please visit shangrilagardens.org.
