One man’s trash is another man’s charity
The Litter-Thon allows nonprofits to make money by cleaning up. The county initiative pays nonprofit groups $4 per bag of litter picked up off of Spotsy roads.
Recently, a group of volunteers from the Spotsylvania County School Administration collected 35 bags of trash and four tires (two tires count as one bag of trash). They gave the $148 they earned to the clothes closet for homeless students in Spotsylvania schools.
You can still get in on the trashy fun:
