Mayor Steve Adler Proclaims Friday, April 22nd as “Give 5 to Mother Earth Day” in the City of Austin; Encourages Austinites to patronize participating businesses
Austin Mayor Steve Adler has officially proclaimed next Friday, April 22nd as “Give 5 to Mother Earth Day” and is asking Austinites to get out and “eat, shop & play” at Give 5 participating businesses in order to raise funds and awareness for the work of Give 5’s 9 environmental nonprofits.
In the proclamation, Mayor Adler says:
“Austin is known for its stewardship of our environment and, on Earth Day, it is most appropriate to recognize the many people committed to preserving the valuable natural treasures of Central Texas. In order to successfully protect our natural resources and our earth as a whole, our entire community – including local political leaders, community leaders, and business owners must work together.
To celebrate the 46th Anniversary of Earth Day, more than 100 local businesses are donating 5 percent of their sales to a coalition of nonprofit organizations committed to improving the quality of life for all citizens … I call on all Austinites to join me in thanking the participating businesses for generously donating a portion of their Earth Day sales and I urge citizens to celebrate Earth Day by patronizing these businesses.
