I recently returned from 10 days in Iceland. They have a mindset about recycling and their environment, and it would seem to be a good model for here.
They’re moving ahead with their grant money, starting a grand recycling initiative!
One of our 30 in Thirty grant winners is showing some real results!
With the help of all of these amazing supporters, who – combined – gave hundreds of hours of volunteer time, we were able to make a tremendous impact on Carytown. The people who came to enjoy that slice of Virginia – and a slice of watermelon – experienced the best our Commonwealth has to offer.
Going into this year, we had awarded $145,000 to 195 different projects. This year, they ranged from $500 to $1,000, and five winners were awarded $2,000 to expand and/or continue legacy projects!
We awarded the Buckroe Improvement League in Hampton, a $500 30 in Thirty grant to support their Pet Waste Station.
We awarded Augusta County Recycling Committee a $500 30 in Thirty grant for their Cigarette Litter Prevention Project titled, “Park Your Butts Here.”
