We awarded Lynnhaven River NOW, an organization based in Hampton Roads, a $2,000 30 in Thirty grant for their Litter Prevention project.
It is their plan to install a cleanup station at the central location of their tennis courts. This station will educate residents and visitors about the impacts of litter, while also providing the opportunity to put litter in its place, and make a positive impact in the community.
We awarded Friends of Peak Creek (FOPC), an organization based in Pulaski, a $750 30 in Thirty grant for their litter prevention project.
We celebrated the first Earth Day in 1970, but almost 50 years later, we’re not quite done.
It’s another season of 30 in Thirty Grants, and another season of beautiful things to do in Virginia!
Our Third Annual Shiver in the River was indeed our best yet, and helped us to raise much needed funds to help us help you to keep Virginia beautiful.
We have a great Shiver in the River video from our friends at Creative Dog Media! Enjoy.
