20th Annual Billy Sandifer Big Shell Beach Cleanup

By 25

Attention Volunteers!!! 2015 is almost here and that means the 20th Annual Billy Sandifer Big Shell Beach Cleanup is around the corner. This cleanup can not happen without the help of our volunteers and your help is needed again. See you there! The Big Shell Beach Cleanup will be held Saturday, 28 February, 2015. Volunteers will meet at Malaquite Pavilion on PINS and the event will commence at 8 a.m. To reach Malaquite Pavilion, stay on South Padre Island Drive (SPID) through Corpus Christi out onto North Padre Island where it becomes Park Road 22. Just keep driving till you come to the entry gate of PINS. Tell the attendant you are there to volunteer for the beach cleanup and you will not be charged admission. The second set of buildings is the Malaquite Pavilion and turn into the huge parking lot. It’s on the left side of Park Road 22. All volunteers will be back at the pavilion by 3 pm. Four wheel drive vehicles, trailers for hauling trash in and out of the work area, and working volunteers are needed. Walking volunteers (those arriving in two wheel drive vehicles) are welcome and will be afforded transportation to and from the work area. Those unable to pick up trash but having four wheel drive vehicles are most welcome to aid in hauling volunteers and trash. The event will not be rescheduled and will take place rain or shine. Snacks, water, and soft drinks will be available in the work area and refreshments will be available at Malaquite following the event. Long pants and sturdy foot wear are recommended. Don’t pick up broken glass or flammable items. Report all hazardous items to your section leaders. Volunteers will receive free event t-shirts. This is a worthy event and it’s only possible because of volunteer participation. Please come and join us. Thanks, Friends of Padre
