Adopt-A-Spot

Why Adopt?
Adopt-A-Spot volunteers are responsible for picking up thousands of pounds of litter each year from Denton’s roadways, contributing to a cleaner, more beautiful city; a higher quality of life for residents; and a vibrant local economy.

Being an Adopter gives participants an opportunity to give back to the community, teach their children about community responsibility, receive positive publicity for their business, and gain valuable community volunteer experience. Not to mention, being part of one of the largest programs of its kind in Texas, with nearly 40 active groups!
