Our #GivingTuesday campaign: 'Kick the Habit' to protect our parks and environment!

Help us abate litter by encouraging re-fillable bottle usage!!



The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation, in partnership with the Alexandria Soccer Association, wants to make single-use water bottles a thing of the past at Alexandria's athletic fields. Though players and coaches often use refillable water bottles, a particular challenge has been larger events like tournaments and tryouts, due to the amount of water needed and the lack of water infrastructure--water bottle fillers and higher-flow faucets to fill large coolers and jugs--that support the waste-free use of water. Standard drinking fountains won't do.

With funding from Action Alexandria's Green Ideas Challenge and the commitment of City matching funds, we are well on our way to our goal of installing water-bottle and jug filling stations at the City's two highest-use fields, Simpson Stadium Park and Witter Fields. Alexandria Soccer already has water jugs/coolers, and its players have reusable bottles. Help us fill them.

The Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation is a non-profit corporation and volunteer organization formed this year following years of community efforts to foster the preservation, beautification, improvement, maintenance, and enjoyment of Four Mile Run Park. Our work this year has included community tree planting, invasive plant removal, and conservation and beautification activities that complement the City of Alexandria's wetland and stream restoration work. 'Kick the Habit' is our effort to address a major component of the litter found in City parks.

Your contribution to 'Kick the Habit' will be matched dollar-for-dollar through a Community Matching Fund grant we were awarded through the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities.

Our campaign goal is $3,000. With matching funding and existing commitments, this amount would allow us to reach our project budget of $10,000!
