We awarded Lynnhaven River NOW, an organization based in Hampton Roads, a $2,000 30 in Thirty grant for their Litter Prevention project.

We awarded Friends of Peak Creek (FOPC), an organization based in Pulaski, a $750 30 in Thirty grant for their litter prevention project.
We awarded AskHRGreen, based in Hampton Roads, a $2,000 grant for their Cigarette Litter Prevention project.
We celebrated the first Earth Day in 1970, but almost 50 years later, we’re not quite done.
