2017 Roadside Cleanup
New York State's Adopt-A-Highway Program has existed since 1990. Today volunteers have adopted approximately 5,000 miles of state highways and kept them free of trash. With taxpayers' money being spent on highway repair and safety, it is up to valuable volunteers to keep New York State's highways clean. Adopt a highway today and help keep the state beautiful. Across the country, thousands of communities have signaled their commitment to keeping America beautiful by adopting stretches of highway and pledging to keep them litter-free.

Christmas Toy Drive
The Essex County Toys for Kids organization gives the school money for
volunteers to purchase toys for students. Then the families are contacted and told that their child has
been selected to receive some special Christmas treats. Families come to the
school either during the school day or after school to pick up the gifts. This
school organization is coordinated by Jodi Thompson but encompasses about 20
volunteers made up of faculty and staff.
The money that is given to the school is all fund-raised in Essex County
through Motorcycle Rides, raffles, and donations through local businesses.
None of the money that this raised leaves Essex County. The purpose is to
focus on children of all ages in just our county.
