Armed with rubber gloves and garbage bags, local schools and volunteer groups are working together for Pitch In Week, cleaning up garbage across town.
Colleen Johnston, Administration Assistant at Houston’s Chamber of Commerce, says this is the thirteenth year pitch in has run in Houston, and groups from across town will be out picking up garbage and cleaning things up.
Besides the schools, Houston pitch in groups include the Public Library, the District of Houston, the Museum Society, Northwest Community College, B.V. Credit Union and the Houston Seniors, said Johnston.
“It’s awesome, because it really helps clean up the community,” said Johnston.
Anyone interested in joining pitch in this week can stop by the Houston Chamber of Commerce for bags and gloves.
