The owners of the Dulles Greenway won’t be the only ones hoping for heavy ridership on the highway next Thursday—the fortunes of several community support organizations are in play as well.
May 18 will be the 12th annual Drive for Charity, the day when Toll Road Investors Partnership II will donate all fares collected at toll booths along the 14-mile highway to area charities.
Last year’s event raised $331,594. During the past 11 years, $2.7 million in toll collections have been donated to charities through the program.
This year, beneficiaries are the March of Dimes, National Capital Area; Every Citizen Has Opportunities; the Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter; Fresh Air/Full Care; the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy; and the Loudoun Free Clinic. Also TRIP II provides
$2,000 scholarships to one graduating senior at each of the Loudoun County public high schools.
