King George County has been awarded a 30 in Thirty grant of $750 in the Litter Prevention category.
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.
King George County plans to host a Community Clean-up Event, comprised of five teams of volunteers that will clean up portions of five arterial routes in the county. Funds received from Keep Virginia Beautiful will be used to purchase cleanup tools and supplies, as well as educational materials that will be distributed to volunteers at the post-cleanup cookout and other community events.
