COLUMBIA, SC – Employees of two Columbia businesses lined the side of Fernandina Road in Lexington County on May 30, 2014, carrying orange garbage bags full of trash. The volunteers came from Columbia Conference Center and DuBose Web Group, two businesses located in the Westpark office park, which borders Fernandina Road. They were part of a beautification effort for the frontage road, collecting refuse for Adopt-a-Highway and removing the unsightly trash. Over several hours, they collected ten bags and several large items’ worth of refuse.
The Adopt-A-Highway volunteer opportunity was facilitated by Keep the Midlands Beautiful and SCDOT. Keep the Midlands Beautiful is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, America’s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization. Over 225 organizations across South Carolina partner with Adopt-A-Highway to clean up their roadways and improve their local communities.
