By Shavonne Walker

Sheriff Kevin Auten created a unique way to raise money and make the community a little cleaner at the same time. He’s set forth a plan to have deputies volunteer to pick up litter along the roadside.

The fundraising part of the plan will come in the form of sponsorships for the campaign.

Individuals and businesses will be asked to contribute by giving a $30 donation and a $3 pledge for the garbage bags, which will be used to collect the trash and debris.

A sponsor can select how many bags they want to pledge. The sponsor’s name will be recognized at the May 7 Relay for Life event. The sponsors will be listed on a banner that will be displayed at the event, held at the Rowan County Fairgrounds.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities, contact the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office at 704-216-8700.
