Compassionate Friends ‘Adopt a Highway’

The Compassionate Friends of Ottawa County recently signed up to help keep our highways clean through the Ohio Department of Transportation’s “Adopt A Highway” program.  Volunteer groups adopt a two mile section or an interchange along a State Route, United States Route or Interstate. The Compassionate Friends of Ottawa County adopted State Route 163 West from Route 2 for a two mile stretch to Lacarne.  

Groups who sign up with the program adopt for two years and pick up a minimum of four times each year. Participants in Adopt-A-Highway are volunteers and not paid to pick up litter. Groups can partner with others in adopting, but may not pay another group to pick up litter. The Department of Transportation provides safety training, trash bags, disposable safety vests and two signs to be used at the beginning of the two mile section. The only cost to each group is their time. The Compassionate Friends of Ottawa County’s Chapter Leader, Roseann Hickman, said “The parents of our organization are proud to be giving back to our communities that have given so much to us. Everything we do is for the memory of our children gone too soon.”
