I'm doing a "dry" run in preparation for my first official cleanup!
I fell in love with the 700 back in July, and after a few months of bliss, I decided to take the leap– I adopted my bus stop.
In exchange for my promise to keep things clean, Keep Durham Beautiful provided me with a bright orange swag bag complete with four matching trash grabbers, four volunteer safety vests (two yellow & two orange), work gloves, and a box of Glad ForceFlex trash bags (the preferred brand in my very own home!). Pretty snazzy, right?
The adoption process was simple. I emailed my completed agreement form
to Keep Durham Beautiful and my supplies were ready to pick up a few days later. Now all I have to do to keep up my end of the bargain is clean the stop at least twice a month and report back any graffiti or other problems.
I moved to Durham in July of 2008 and feel more at home here than in any other city I’ve lived. I’m proud to have this opportunity to help make things a little more beautiful, and the Adopt A Stop program helps me feel more civically engaged. Plus, they give you grabbers. I mean, who hasn’t always wanted their very own grabber? It’s a win-win.
