Despite Rain, Roadside Cleanup Volunteers Shine

Participants in a cleanup along Charles Boulevard included, left to right, Katelyn Edwards, Sarah Tart, Endia Basden, Camille White, Brandie Tew, Brittany Wilson, Elizabeth Abbott, Ashley Redfern and Asha Thomas.


Gray skies and day-long drizzle did not deter volunteers from joining a roadside cleanup organized by students in East Carolina University’s College of Health and Human Performance Sept. 17.

The students from the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies cleaned a mile-long section of Charles Boulevard, extending from Greenville Boulevard to 10th Street. Wearing safety vests and gloves, all nine volunteers worked several hours to collect plastic bottles, paper and aluminum materials from the roadside.

The students are members of the recreation and leisure student undergraduate society, led by vice president Elizabeth Abbott of Raleigh. Abbott is a recreational therapy major.

“Lending a hand in the Greenville community through service projects is the mission of our society,” Abbott said. “It is also a good opportunity to network with fellow students as well as helping a good cause.”

It was the second time the society participated in the cleanup. They plan to continue the event once a semester.

The group was assisting the Recreation and Leisure Studies’ graduate society, which formally adopted the highway last year.


The cleanup crew worked for several hours despite rainy, drizzly weather.
