Pitching in to make Wareham beautiful
The members of the High School Key Club and the Eighth Grade Leadership Class are making Wareham streets cleaner by teaming up with Don’t Trash Wareham.
Each group of students chose streets and headed out, decked out in bright yellow vests and armed with white trash bags, to pick up roadside trash.
The Key Club adopted the section of Minot Avenue from the Minot School to Indian Neck Road and have been cleaning that section for the past five years. Recently, Philanthropy Partners of the Cape and Islands, a non-profit, volunteer-led organization, had recognized the club as an Outstanding Youth Organization, in part because of their work with Don’t Trash Wareham.
The Eighth Grade Leadership Class adopted High Street in May of this year and just finished this semester’s cleanup.
According to Nora Bicki, a founding member of Don’t Trash Wareham, “not only are these students providing a great service to our town, they are also learning the importance of advocating the prevention of littering which is part of the education process.”
