On one day a year, people can give back by driving on the Dulles Greenway. That’s because of the Greenway’s Drive for Charity, a special day each year – May 18 this year – when all tolls collected go to Loudoun County charities.
This year’s tolls will go to six non-profits and the Dulles Greenway Citizen Award. The charities are Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, The March of Dimes (National Capital Area chapter), Every Citizen Has Opportunities (ECHO), Loudoun Abused Women’s shelter (LAWS), FreshAir/Full Care, and Loudoun Free Clinic.
The Dulles Greenway Citizen Award is given to selected graduating seniors from Loudoun County public high schools. The aid provides $2,000 to be used to any college or post-secondary institution expense.
Through the Drive for Charity, Dulles Greenway has given more then $2.7 million over the past 11 years.
