KIB Partners with Gartner, Inc. for Cleanup Project
Irving, TX, January 18, 2024 – On Jan. 11, Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) welcomed eight Gartner, Inc. employee volunteers to Bird’s Fort Trail Park, 5756 Riverside Drive, for a service project. They conducted a cleanup of the park, focusing on the tree lines where litter tends to collect. Wearing shirts that read, “Gartner Green Team,” the group enthusiastically set out to tackle the important task of preventing litter from reaching the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, which forms the eastern border of the park.
“KIB is always happy to work with Gartner employee volunteers,” said KIB board member Dr. Roy Vu. “They have participated in two prior cleanups with KIB. We appreciate their service and the positive impact they made here today.”
