|The Oakland Youth Group helps by cleaning roads|
Oakland Christian Church Youth Group a.k.a. Ridge Kids are thankful for the opportunity to serve our community by cleaning up four and a half miles of Milford Road. We collected 13 bags of garbage. This service project allowed us to earn much needed money for a summer trip. During our clean-up we found beer bottles and cans, pop bottles and cans, whiskey bottles, McDonald's bags and food. The strangest items were an eight track tape player and a toaster! We did not just do this for money, we want to help Mother Nature. This earth needs less alcohol and littering and more appreciation for Mother Nature's beauty.
