Flint Hill School Grabs 30 in Thirty

Wakefield Country Day School in Flint Hill wants to educate its faculty and students about the positive effects recycling has on the environment. Their goal is to reduce waste by starting a student-run single stream recycling program. The role of the environmental club will be to educate students of the proper items to recycle. 30 in Thirty funds awarded by Keep Virginia Beautiful will be used to purchase large recycling receptacles to place in the school. Wakefield Country Day School has been awarded a grant of $500 in the Recycling category.

Government, non-profit, civic and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for 30 in Thirty grants for $500 to $1,000 telling how they are addressing these pressing issues:  Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, and Community Beautification. Since 2011, Keep Virginia Beautiful has provided over $110,000 to 140 organizations throughout the state.  This year, for the first time, we are awarding 45 grants because of the generosity of our partners at Altria, Keep America Beautiful, WestRock Foundation and Trex.
