The Dulles Greenway’s 11th annual Drive For Charity achieved record collections Thursday—and that’s good news for six area charities and 15 new high school graduates.
All toll collections during the 24 hours of May 19—some $331,000—will be invested back into the community as donations. The program has raised $2.7 million over the past decade.
“I am continuously amazed by the on-going support from the local drivers and the media,” said Terry Hoffman, the spokesman for the Dulles Greenway owners.
On Thursday, the Greenway carried the most cars on a single day since 2005.
Charities that will receive Drive For Charity grants are:
- March of Dimes
- Every Citizen Has Opportunity (ECHO)
- Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS)
- Fresh Air/Full Care
- Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy
- Loudoun Free Clinic
Additionally, the Greenway gives scholarships to a graduate at each Loudoun County public high school.
