My students need safety vests to stay visible to vehicles and the grabbers to pick up hard to reach trash for the 2-mile stretch of road they adopted and clean.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead.
This is what we strive for by doing our part to protect our planet. If we begin small by picking up trash, then it is a step in the right direction.
We are a public high school in Florida with about 75% of our students on free and reduced price lunch.
Several of our students come to our school to be a part of one of our academic academies so that they can take an active role in their education. As part of our academy, we are helping our students become well-rounded individuals by becoming involved in community service and have adopted a road to maintain.
By receiving these resources, our students will be able to feel safer while picking up trash during our road clean-ups. They will be more visible to the traffic that drives past our collection site. They will also be able to pick up more items from those hard to reach areas, such as the ditches and bushes. My students need safety vests to stay visible to vehicles and the grabbers to pick up hard to reach trash for the 2-mile stretch of road they adopted and clean.
We have only been given limited supplies for our road clean-ups so by receiving these materials, it will enable more students to feel as if they are contributing to the care of our planet while feeling safe and visible.
