About this experience

Join RegenrusCARES while we help to make Denton beautiful! The Great American Cleanup  is Denton's largest and longest-running community cleanup! RegenrusCARES will register each of our volunteer team members. We will meet (info TBD) and together we will clean our designated location of any trash, debris, or recyclables. After feel free to join all of the GAC Volunteers for a fun Volunteer Appreciation after party held at Quakertown Park. 

***Registration for our team must be entered before March 12th!***
