In honor and celebration of Texas Independence Day, The Yuengling Company and Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) celebrated the history of Texas with community cleanup.
The community cleanup took place at Loyd Park at Joe Pool Lake early Saturday morning in an effort to inspire and empower Texans to keep the Lone Star State clean and beautiful.
The event also celebrates the continued partnership between Keep Texas Beautiful and the Yuengling Company.
Keep Texas Beautiful and the Yuengling Company’s partnership is not only a way for the family-owned brewery to show their dedication to Texas but to Keep Texas Beautiful as well.
Abbi Schuler, a representative for the Yuengling Company, spoke to The Dallas Express and explained that Yuengling brews their beer in Texas and sought out KTB.
“We started brewing our beer in Texas in August of 2021, and we thought it was really important for folks to understand that we do brew our beer here in Texas even though a lot of people are familiar with us being from Pennsylvania,” Schuler said speaking to The Dallas Express.
“So with that, we found the great partners of keep Texas beautiful and thought it made sense for us to work together on a program that gives back to Texas,” Schuler said.
She said that from the beginning of the year, in January through March 2023, the Yuengling Company is donating one dollar per case of their traditional 12-pack lagger to KTB that is sold.
There were many people that came out to help clean up Lloyd Park at Joe Pool Lake in Grand Prairie Saturday morning who felt that they needed to give back to the community and wanted to keep Texas clean.
“I just wanted to give back,” said Joseph Williams, a member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, speaking to The Dallas Express.
“It’s important to keep the community clean.”
Keeping Texas clean is a priority not only for the state but for KTB and executive director Suzanne Kho.
Kho knows the importance of keeping a community clean and was very happy to see all the volunteers helping clean the community.
“It’s great to see so many people here today who turned out on this chilly day to come out and volunteer because that’s what Keep Texas Beautiful is all about, mobilizing volunteers around the state who are working with their local communities,” Kho said to The Dallas Express.
