Adopt a Highway
In October, 1996, St. James assumed the responsibility of cleaning up a 0.8-mile stretch of 14th Street West in south Rock Island. This activity occurs four times a year. It usually takes about an hour to do the job. The second pickup date for 2022 will be on Saturday, July 9 at 8:45 am.
We meet at the eastern parking lot of Mel McKay Park in South Rock Island. Please wear sturdy shoes. Safety vests, gloves, garbage bags, grabbers, and garbage bag holders will be provided.
