Join Pineapple Willy's Summer Beach Cleanup

Making Waves for a Cleaner Coast

Published on April 24, 2024 by Pineapple Willy’s

As the sun begins to shine brighter and the waves beckon us to the shores, it’s time for us to come together once again for a cause close to our hearts: the preservation of our beloved beaches. Pineapple Willy’s is thrilled to announce the return of our annual Summer Beach Cleanup, marking our sixth consecutive year of coastal conservation efforts since its inception in 2018.

When and Where

Starting June 1st, 2024, and continuing every Saturday morning through September 7th, 2024, from 8:30 am to 9:30 am, we invite you to join us at Pineapple Willy’s for a morning of community, camaraderie, and cleaning! Located on the picturesque shores of Pineapple Willy’s in Panama City Beach, FL, our cleanup crew will gather bright and early to make a positive impact on our coastline.

Our Mission

At Pineapple Willy’s, we believe in giving back to our community and safeguarding the natural beauty that surrounds us. Over the years, our Summer Beach Cleanup has become a cornerstone event, embodying our commitment to environmental stewardship and community engagement. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic in 2020, we’re proud to have persevered and continued our tradition, rallying together for a cleaner, greener tomorrow.

Making a Difference, One Cleanup at a Time

In 2023 alone, thanks to the dedication of volunteers like you, we donated a staggering $19,690 to 17 different nonprofit organizations dedicated to various causes, from animal welfare to youth empowerment and beyond. Since the inception of our cleanup initiative in 2018, we’ve proudly contributed a total of $79,980, making a tangible difference in the lives of countless individuals and communities.

How You Can Help

Participating in our Summer Beach Cleanup is not only a chance to roll up your sleeves and make a direct impact on our coastline but also an opportunity to give back to deserving nonprofits in our community. For every individual who joins us, Pineapple Willy’s will donate $10 to that week’s designated organization, ensuring that your efforts ripple outward in meaningful ways.

Exciting Incentives Await

But wait, there’s more! As a token of our appreciation for your ongoing support, we’re thrilled to announce weekly raffle prizes for participants, with exciting giveaways every Saturday. Plus, for every three cleanups you attend, you’ll automatically be entered into our grand prize raffle drawings at the conclusion of our final beach cleanup.
