River Ridge students take part in litter pickup

A group of students from River Ridge Academy participated in a litter pickup day on Bluffton Parkway as part of the school’s partnership with Keep Beaufort County Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc.

River Ridge Academy students made a commitment to remove litter from Bluffton Parkway four times per year through the Keep Beaufort County Beautiful Adopt-A-Highway program.

“We are so proud of the students for their commitment to their community,” said Caroline Jordan, Keep Beaufort County Beautiful coordinator.

The partnership’s success comes in two parts – the students are able to learn about community service and civic engagement, and the parkway remains litter-free and safe for Beaufort County residents.
