ALL GREENWAY TOLLS GO TO CHARITY ON MAY 15TH

On May 15, the Dulles Greenway will hold its 9th Annual Drive for Charity event.  The Greenway will use the tolls collected that day to fund the Dulles Greenway Citizenship Award which grants scholarships to one student from each of the thirteen Loudoun County high schools, and to contribute to the five charities below. The Greenway has proudly donated a total of $1.7 million in the past eight years to the scholarship program and various charities.

March of Dimes (National Capital Area) – The Greenway has helped the NICU Family Support Project fund a Family Support Specialist at INOVA Fairfax Hospital for Children to oversee activities of the program, as well as support activities in the program (patient care kits, parent education hours and patient safety classes).

Every Citizen Has Opportunities (ECHO) – Echo has been able to purchase five 12 passenger vans that provide transportation for people with disabilities to and from work with the contributions received from the Greenway.

Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter (LAWS) – 2013 funds helped LAWS serve 1,043 victims of domestic and sexual violence in Loudoun County.

Fresh Air / Full Care – The Greenway has helped low income working parents to pay for the cost of summer camp for their children.  This provides the children with a safe and enriching experience through the summer months.  The Drive for Charity sent 89 Loudoun County children to summer camp for an impressive 423 weeks last summer.

Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy (LWC) - Funding from the Greenway enabled kick-off of the County-wide Monarch butterfly campaign to plant Monarch Waystations and raise and release more than 2,013 butterflies in 2013. Funds also paid for extensive meadow restoration work at the Blue Ridge Center that will become a model for other locations to follow and for the technical support for our continued amphibian monitoring program and vernal pool restoration activities.

The Dulles Greenway is a privately owned 14-mile toll road that connects Washington Dulles International Airport with Leesburg, Virginia.
