After Memorial Day weekend, our beautiful beach environment was left in a terrible state with overflowing garbage, litter and debris of every type. There was outrage expressed by our SKA members and the Siesta Key community who care deeply about our home. The outrage has been channeled to action. Take action during what may sadly be the worst holiday for trash and debris July 4 weekend.
LIBERTY CLEANUP - JULY 5 (Sarasota County Keep Sarasota County Beautiful)
PACK IT IN - PACK IT OUT - JULY 3-5 with SKA and Siesta Key volunteers
Join forces with volunteer VERONICA MURPHY, Siesta Key resident. Help distribute Pick Up bags to families and group gatherings on the beach.
Her plan and coverage needs in her own words: " We bought 900 bags to distribute, maybe 400 during Saturday and Sunday and 500 on July 4th. 800 of these are biodegradable, if anyone asks and anyone can buy bags and distribute on their own as well. We need afternoon people, those that can walk to or ride a bike to access points from Access 3 to the public beach. We are trying to look at folks on the beach, see who may need a bag, and remind the beach-goers that pails are at the top of the beach as they exit." Veronica Murphy
Contact Veronica at email@example.com to volunteer for any period of time, walk some of the beach, sharing bags for clean-up.
Help us keep a culture of care for our beautiful #1 FOREVER Siesta Key Beach! And THANKS in advance for all you do. Celebrate safely July 4 Independence Day!
