Dickenson County gets Grant for Beautification
Dickenson County Chamber in the Town of Clintwood has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $1000 for its Community Beautification project. The Chamber is responsible for business marketing, information, and workshops within the Dickenson County community. The organization recently received a LOVE sign from Virginia Tourism to place in front of their Visitor Center. The Chamber will use their grant funding to plant a garden and some small trees around their new LOVE sign, so people will have a place to sit and enjoy the peacefulness of the visitor center. The garden will also be a beautiful site for visitors and citizens of the community when driving through town.
Since 2011, we have provided $203,000 for 260 different environmental projects and programs all across the Commonwealth, due to the generosity this year of our partner Altria, as well as additional support from Keep America Beautiful and Coca-Cola.
