Adopt- A- Highway

Adopt the Highway is one of the staple programs of the Jerome Alston Memorial Foundation. Jerome was a huge advocate for community service. He was known to have started the Adopt A Highway program for the Gamma Xi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. It was only fitting to continue this part of his legacy. 

This quarterly community service event provides an opportunity to beautify the community along Taylor Road and Portsmouth Boulevard in the City of Chesapeake, Virginia.
