Eckhardt to host day of service

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

This Friday, Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt will lead the charge to clean up the 77-acre Shudde Fath Tract – which borders the Barton Creek Greenbelt in South Austin. She will be joined by the Save Barton Creek Association, Keep Austin Beautiful and Travis County officials, including elected and appointed officials and county executives. According to a press release about the cleanup, which will take place from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., “This cleanup will launch the Travis County United in Giving Campaign, an annual effort inviting employees to donate to any registered 501 (c)(3) of their choice. This year, Judge Eckhardt and Commissioner (Gerald) Daugherty have joined forces in order to generate as many donations as possible. The Judge and Commissioner have chosen to focus on a goal of 100% participation from employees through monetary donations and/or voluntarism. Judge Eckhardt is launching the push for employee voluntarism by inviting all Travis County leaders to help the Save Barton Creek Association and Keep Austin Beautiful by cleaning up the Shudde Fath Tract.”
