Keep Lubbock Beautiful Encourages Making a Difference

The City of Lubbock has teamed up with Keep Lubbock Beautiful in celebration of "Make A Difference Day" which is October 27.

"Make A Difference Day" is a national celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. Millions of Americans take part in the event annually.

More than 40 City staff and Keep Lubbock Beautiful volunteers will kick-off this year's event by painting the interior of the Marion Moss building, 501 East 42nd Street on Friday, October 26. In the afternoon, volunteers and students will also clean the Jackson Elementary Outdoor Learning Center, 201 Vernon Avenue.

On Saturday, volunteers from across Lubbock will gather at 8 a.m. to clean-up East Lubbock.

"KLB encourages all citizens to volunteer during "Make A Difference Day" in any way possible," said Kathleen Finley, coordinator for Keep Lubbock Beautiful. "Even the smallest act can make a big difference in a person's life and in the community."

Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join in the effort. Anyone wishing to participate in the East Lubbock clean-up on Saturday may go to any of the following locations:

  • St. Patrick's Catholic Church, 1603 Cherry Avenue
  • New Zion Baptist Church, 1601 MLK Boulevard
  • East 3rd Street and Niter Avenue
  • Parkway Bingo Parking Lot, Parkway Drive
  • Old United Supermarket Building, East 4th & Idalou Highway

Work begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday and concludes at Noon.
For more information, call Kathleen Finley at (806) 775-2280.
