Volunteers come out to keep Biloxi beaches barefoot friendly

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

From the Interstate 110 loop to Porter Avenue, you may have noticed hundreds of people picking up trash on Biloxi beaches Saturday. The beach cleanup was sponsored by Barefoot Wine.

The men and women of Keesler Air Force Base and their families partnered with the wine company for the big cleanup. Barefoot Wine also sponsored T-shirts for volunteers to wear as they walked up and down the beach in search of litter.

According to Barefoot Wine State Manager Jon Bourdais, the goal of the cleanup was to keep Biloxi beaches barefoot friendly.

"We do believe in community, and obviously this is a good cause for everyone, everybody involved. Everybody likes a clean beach," said Bourdais.

The cleanup day brought out around 200 volunteers to comb the sand for more than just sea shells.
