It was a great day for a cleanup.  On Saturday, October 27, 2012 a squad from the Islamic Society of Southern Prince George’s County (ISSPGC) claimed its commitment to “Adopt a Highway” under provisions of the Maryland State Highway Administration. 

The cleanup campaign began at the ISSPGC Masjid with a breakfast and safety briefing. The squad then proceeded to the cleanup site at Palmer Road and Indian Head Highway and fanned out along a stretch of Indian Head Highway picking up trash and debris in an effort to beautify and bring to mind the need to eliminate litter and blight and to maintain a healthy community environment. 

“This effort represents a need to make the community aware of the harmful effects of blight and litter and to demonstrate that individuals, with the help of Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala  have the power to make a positive and effective difference when it comes to the state of our community’s health,” said ISSPGC President Brother Khalil Muhammad.

This effort represents the first of four clean up outings to be carried within the course of one year.   Signs marking the area adopted by ISSPGC now mark the highway indicating the area the organization has “adopted.” 

The Adopt a Highway program has had a positive impact as community groups and organizations have taken some of  the burden off taxpayer resources by working to clean up and curtail litter along Maryland State highways. Interested organizations can contact the State Highway Administration to find out how they can participate in this worthwhile and much needed effort.  Individuals interested in joining the effort sponsored by ISSPGC should contact The Islamic Society of Southern Prince George’s County located at 5410 Indian Head Highway, Oxon Hill Maryland 20735 or contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
