Randolph-Macon SGA Wins 30 in Thirty Grant

Randolph-Macon College Student Government Association has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Grant of $1,000 in the Recycling category.

The Randolph-Macon College Student Government Association functions as a practical means to establish and maintain effective government on the campus of Randolph-Macon College. Their project, Sustainable Seniors, will add small recycling bins to all senior apartments on campus, and  larger recycling bins for transporting the recyclables for processing. They will also provide educational material for all across campus about recycling, how to recycle, its importance, and impact.

Government, non-profit, civic and service organizations in Virginia were invited to apply for grants for $500 to $1,000 describing how they plan to tackle an environmental concern in their community regarding Litter Prevention, Recycling, Cigarette Litter Prevention, or Community Beautification. Since 2011, we have provided over $178,000 to fund 230 environmental projects and programs all across the Commonwealth, due to the generosity this year of our partners at Altria and Keep America Beautiful.
