The “Butt Kickers” of John Adams Middle School are heading downtown for the ninth year.
On Monday, the students will pick up littered cigarette butts throughout downtown. Each retrieved butt will prevent harm to the environment and make Rochester more attractive. The Rochester Downtown Alliance and the Rochester Park Department have joined the effort and will donate a nickel for each cigarette butt — up to $1,000 — to the John Adams Science Alive! Lab.
Students will be dressed in red T-shirts and will be working from 8:10 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
