    Roadside Cleanup - Adopt-a-Highway
    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.

    Scholarship for Senior
    Each year the association gives a scholarship to a graduating senior who is majoring in education.

    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.
