Whether you’re commuting, running errands or visiting friends, taking the Dulles Greenway on Thursday May 17 will make you feel good. That’s because this is the Greenway’s Drive for Charity, a special day each year when all tolls collected go to Loudoun County charities and towards scholarships for county students.
The recipients of your dollars this year are six non-profits and the Dulles Greenway Scholarship program. 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 one-day drive enables Loudoun Wildlife to provide its many free programs and events.
The Dulles Greenway Citizen Award scholarships for college are given to selected students from Loudoun County public high schools.
Through the Drive for Charity, Dulles Greenway has given more then $2.7 million since the drive began.
