Gainesville wins clean-up contest

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Tex. -- The city of Gainesville will be getting a helping hand cleaning up. We told you about this story last week. The Henkel brand, a German company that makes Dial soaps, held a contest to bring $25,000 clean-up effort to a deserving community.

Lorrie Grewing of Gainesville wrote an essay entering the city, and many of you voted for the Cooke County town hit hard by early summer flooding.

She says she wants a visit from the soap company to help Gainesville pick up after so much was lost.

Gainesville beat out two other cities; one is in New York and the other in Virginia.

Now the Henkel brand’s "Like a Friend" crew is scheduled to be in Gainesville on September 26th to help clean up after June’s devastating flood.
