Volunteer Opportunity of the Week: Clean Up the Roads!

| August 5, 2010

One of my favorite volunteer activities is cleaning up highways. I know, that sounds like anything but pleasant, but it really can be fun! As pres. of my pre-law fraternity last year, I helped set up a rolling volunteer activity for us through the city of Springfield’s Adopt-A-Street program.

For student organizations looking for an easy, cost-free way to volunteer, this is perfect! All we had to do was sign up with the City, promise to pick up our designated portion of the road twice a year, and call when we did so the city could come pick up the bags. Literally took us less than an hour each time.

And it’s not gross, either. No worse than taking your own trash out everyday, but even better–you get gloves and sometimes little spears to pick up the trash!

But I know this kind of thing isn’t limited to Springfield.

When I was middle school, one of our field trips was cleaning up a local road {what a field trip, huh?}, and I’ve done it elsewhere as well.

So, if you’re looking for something super easy to do, look into your city’s possible road clean-up/adopt a street programs.
