NJROTC takes part in “Adopt a Highway” cleanup

Pendleton County High School NJROTC Cadets and chaperones participated in a Pendleton County “Adopt a Highway” cleanup on Saturday, November 15, 2015. The cadets braved opening day of rifle season and cleaned up an eight mile stretch of Hwy 27 that they have adopted up to the Campbell County line. These volunteers never can predict what they’re going to find out on the road…from discarded beer cans and five dollar bills to wrenches and old tires, they have not only seen it all, but they’ve picked most of it up. In addition to keeping Pendleton County beautiful, the cadets earned four hours of community service and helped raise funds which will be applied to unit trips and events. The Adopt a Highway program is an opportunity for community members to help keep highways litter free. Tons of trash are picked up every year by Adopt a Highway programs participants nationwide. You can be a part of positive change by joining the volunteer or sponsor programs that help keep our highways beautiful.
