KVC Needs Help Cleaning Up Pony Pasture

A couple weeks back we introduced a non-profit new to RVA called Keep Virginia Cozy. Litter pickups are a big part — though not all — of what they do, and I’d love to see their footprint grow. If you’ve been down to Pony Pasture between Memorial and Labor days, you know that trash is a constant challenge. So, while we wait for people to figure out that it’s not that hard to leave the park with the same stuff they brought in, let’s support groups like KVC that are doing something about it.

Here’s the info — and here’s the link — on their next event, a Pony Pasture cleanup:

Hey everyone! I just want to say thanks to all of y’all who came out to our last cleanup down on Belle Isle! Your efforts pulled upwards of 40+ bags of trash out of our beautiful river!! Sadly though, there is still trash to be had.. We are going to set our sights on Pony Pasture and the surrounding rocks that people like to hangout on. As per usual there will be coffee and donuts provided by Sugar Shack Donuts, to get everyone hopped up on coffee and sugar so you can have energy to grab as much litter as you can in 3 hours! I really want to extend a warm thank you to everyone who has come out to our past cleanups…and those of you who have taken the extra step and made a donation for our cause. None of this would be possible without y’all! Thank y’all from the bottom of my heart! I hope to see y’all and all your friends down at Pony Pasture on July 22nd at 8:45 a.m.! And as always…remember….. Be kind, Smile at strangers, Pickup litter, and Keep Virginia Cozy!
