Hammonton Rotary road cleanup check.

Hammonton Rotary trades trash for cash

Does it pay to keep your community clean? For the Hammonton Rotary Club the answer is undoubtedly yes. 

On June 21, during its regular meeting at Rocco’s Townhouse in Hammonton, the club reaped the rewards of its participation in the Atlantic County Adopt-a-Road Program with the formal acceptance of a donation from the Atlantic County Utilities Authority.

In exchange for committing to clean up Central Avenue, from Valley Avenue to the White Horse Pike, four times a year, the club is rewarded with a $200 donation toward its charitable causes. Donation or not, Rotary is always happy to engage in community service activities. 

Dave Damiano, who coordinates the Adopt-a-Road program for Hammonton Rotary, presented the check to then President-elect Mike Brown.

To find out how your organization can help keep the community clean, contact ACUA’s clean communities coordinator Rebecca Turygan at rturygan@acua.com.
