Keep Friendswood Beautiful wins $10,000 Harvey restoration grant
News Release
Monday, September 10, 2018

In addition to the more than 2,400 Friendswood homes and more than 70 businesses which were damaged by Hurricane Harvey, the medians on FM 2351 were also heavily affected. The all-volunteer organization “Keep Friendswood Beautiful” has learned they are the recipient of a $10,000 grant to restore those medians. 

The grant application specified that funds can only be used for restoration and beautification of public property. “It was obvious that of all of the potential Friendswood projects that could be funded by the grant, the FM 2351 medians had the greatest need for restoration,” said Keep Friendswood Beautiful Chair Sherry Goen. “This $10,000 from Keep Texas Beautiful will purchase new sod and plants for all of the FM 2351 medians within Friendswood City limits.  I’m thrilled that we were one of the nine cities to be awarded a grant,” Goen added. 

“Keep Friendswood Beautiful and specifically their efforts to procure this $10,000 grant award is another great example of the benefit of the public-private partnerships that the City has with our many volunteers,” said Mayor Mike Foreman. “I’m proud of their work and thankful that all residents can benefit from their ongoing efforts.” 

 Revolver Brewing, Waste Management and Chevron, along with numerous individual donors contributed to the grant pool. In addition to Friendswood, Aransas Pass, Weston Lakes, Aransas County, Seabrook, Cuero, Jasper, Sugar Land, and Lake Jackson were also awarded grants to help rebuild their communities.
