Adopt-A-Spot provides a social and environmentally-friendly volunteering opportunity for students interested in making our campus a better place. When your group decides to adopt a spot, you will be expected to follow our guidelines to ensure that your spot is being maintained effectively.
Here is how it works:
Map of Spots
We want all volunteers to enjoy a safe activity. In your supply packet, we will provide you with clean up instructions, which highlight safety rules and tips on planning and executing your clean up. If there is ever an emergency during an activity, immediately call CUPD at 864-656-2222 or 911 to request help.
When you Adopt-A-Spot, your team is making a commitment to our program. You are expected to complete your clean up activity once per semester and take your adoption seriously. Teams that do not take the program seriously or fail to complete their activity on time each semester will lose their spot. If you feel that your spot is too large for your organization, the Adopt-A-Spot coordinator will be happy to work with you to select a spot which best fits your team.
Make it fun!
We strongly recommend you combine your clean up activity with a social activity. Some student organizations request funding through student government to help finance these social events. Social events also will provide incentive for your team members to show up to the clean-up activity.
You should coordinate your social and clean up activity using your organization’s own communication mechanisms. Facebook events are popular ways for students to plan a group event.
