Volunteer Spotlight: Chuck Kirk
Keep Irving Beautiful recognizes long-time volunteer Chuck Kirk for his impactful community contributions.
Chuck Kirk has been a Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) board member since 2015. He currently holds the office of Treasurer, overseeing the affiliate's budget and expenditures, and reporting to the board each month. As Treasurer, Chuck makes sure KIB has the financial resources to conduct events like the Great American Cleanup and other programs. Now that he is retired with a long history working in the nonprofit arena, he continues to serve a variety of causes as a volunteer.
In addition to his work with KIB, Chuck also serves as a member of the City of Irving Tree Board, which was established in 2009 and is a requirement for Irving to be designated a “Tree City USA.” He has previously served on the City’s Parks Board and is an active volunteer at the Baylor Scott and White Medical Center at Irving. Chuck is always willing to take on any assignment to make an event successful. He takes pride in his community, and shares that pride with others to inspire their spirit of volunteerism.
Chuck frequently attends KIB's large-scale events such as the Great American Cleanup or the Trash Bash, as well as smaller beautification projects with schools or corporate groups. If there is a tree to be planted in Irving -- whether it is an Arbor Day celebration, a tree farm project, or replenishing trees on the Campion Trails or another city park -- it is very likely that Chuck will be there, representing both KIB and the Tree Board. He can always be counted on to greet the volunteers, work a registration table, or give an interview to the Irving Community Television Network crew about the importance of volunteering and giving back to the community.
