[Nacogdoches, Texas] – Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful (KNB) has rolled out a new sponsorship program to support litter abatement at the 2017 Texas Blueberry Festival presented by Tipton Ford Lincoln.
Pilgrim's is the event litter care sponsor for Keep Nacogdoches Beautiful litter abatement during the Texas Blueberry Festival while Doches Credit Union has signed on to support the KNB volunteers on the day of the event. Sponsorships are still available, ranging from $100 – $500.
Corporate Volunteer Sponsorships are free, requiring the sponsor to recruit six volunteers for a two-hour shift during the Blueberry Festival. These sponsors receive the chance to win volunteer awards and a custom KNB shirt, prominently featuring each company's logo on the back, for each of their volunteers to wear during the event.
For over a decade, KNB has partnered with the City of Nacogdoches and The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce to clear litter from the downtown area during the Texas Blueberry Festival. KNB Executive Director Katie Blevins says the new sponsorship program will allow businesses, organizations and individuals to support litter abatement locally.
"The underlying function of our mission is to promote individual responsibility," Blevins said. "We care about cleaning the litter in our town and we want others to care, too. The new sponsorship program provides a way for people to support litter abatement locally in Nacogdoches."
