Since 1992, the Adopt-A-Spot program has engaged volunteers to clean up a street, park, or trail on a recurring basis. Denton Benefit League (DBL) was one of the first adopters registering for their “spot” in 1993. Over the years, DBL has remained active in the program, even having three different cleanup locations across the city at one time!
Current DBL President, Shelley Anthony, shares the value DBL sees in the Adopt-A-Spot program, “We wanted to be a part of helping Denton stay beautiful. I feel like being a part of the cleanups allows others to see that we care about Denton and we are setting an example. Some participants also include their family members and it sets an expectation helping others.”
DBL has worked diligently at their locations for 27 years donating over 2,250 hours of service and removing more than 6.5 tons of litter from our community. The women’s group has also sponsored the program funding roadway signage to recognize the hard work of volunteers at each “spot”. We are grateful for DBL’s commitment to improving the quality of life in Denton and their long-term support of the Adopt-A-Spot program.
