Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick- Clarke has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Grant of $1,000 in the Litter Prevention category. Every year Habitat for Humanity of Winchester-Frederick-Clarke has a neighborhood revitalization day to cleanup a specific neighborhood. This year they are bringing new life to the event by adding “plogging,” which is picking up litter while jogging. Litter will be collected along a jogging route, and volunteers will fill as many trash bags as they can while enjoying their outdoor run. This event will offer the benefits of exercise while supporting the community and the environment!
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.
