The Staffing Alliance Adopted-A-Highway!
Our "Going Green for St. Patrick's Day" clean-up project was such a success and was so well received that we began to brainstorm more ideas for community service projects. It was suggested that we perform litter cleanup duties through the Adopt A Highway program. This would provide an opportunity for visibility and service in the area where The Staffing Alliance is located.
Each state’s Department of Transportation offers this program. We contacted the NC Department of Transportation to apply for the permit. It cost us nothing to complete the paperwork or for the two signs that are placed on Hwy 211 in Lumberton, near the I-95 exit 20 ramp. The service that we will provide will enable the state to focus their money on other road projects instead of litter pickup.
We have committed to clean the area four times a year. Other states may have different requirements. We can schedule cleanups months in advance or a week beforehand.
We are excited to be involved in continued efforts to clean, and revitalize our community.
