We awarded Friends of Peak Creek (FOPC), an organization based in Pulaski, a $750 30 in Thirty grant for their litter prevention project. In the past, FOPC has gathered almost 400 bags of trash and 19 dumptruck loads of furniture, tires, and various appliances from the bed of the creek. The 30 in Thirty grant from us allows FOPC to continue their fight against the degradation of Peak Creek with the purchase of bags, safety vests, gloves and grabbers for a fall cleanup.
Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $145,000 to 195 projects throughout the Commonwealth. This year, we partnered with Altria, Keep America Beautiful, and Deep Run Dance Marathon to make the program possible.
