Sigmas Adopt A Street
Keep Houston Beautiful's Adopt-A-Block program is a way for organizations to participate in making Houston the cleanest city in America. It requires a group to agree to adopt a minimum of 500 yards of an incorporated City of Houston street and to pick up litter from that street at least four times a year for a two-year period. In return, Keep Houston Beautiful and the City of Houston will provide safety meetings, equipment, and trash bags.
The benefits are numerous: a litter-free and more attractive community, and knowing that the individuals involved are making a difference in their community. In 2005, Alpha Beta Sigma adopted the street of Elgin, between Scott and Hwy 288. Brothers typically start on both ends and meet at the center. Afterwards Brothers gather at the Fraternity Center to fellowship. This is a very rewarding service program and Chapters across the nation are urged to participate in this worthwhile service project.
