Garver’s Tulsa office recently adopted a highway through the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program, which began as part of an anti-litter campaign in the summer of 1987.
“I've been wanting to get our office involved in Adopt-A-Highway for a while now,” said Project Engineer Andrew Snyder, who initiated Garver’s involvement. “It’s a great community service opportunity that assists one of our best clients, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.”
The two-mile stretch of adopted highway runs between E. 21st and E. 41st streets on U.S. Highway 169. Garver’s commitment includes picking up litter at least four times a year for a two-year period.
“Backs were sore for two days, but seeing a clean roadway lined with trash bags we helped fill was pretty satisfying,” Andrew said. “Moreover, working alongside co-workers outside the office was a great way to interact with each other outside the office.”
“Volunteering is a team-building, client-assisting, community-improving event that takes less than a day and instills a sense of satisfaction from a job well done,” Andrew said.
