Support 'Kick the Habit' on #GivingTuesday and through AmazonSmile!

In partnership with the Alexandria Soccer Association, we are working to make single-use water bottles a thing of the past at Alexandria's athletic fields. 'Kick the Habit' is our effort to reduce a significant source of waste and litter--the reliance on single-use bottled water--by 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.

There are two simple ways you can help: first, make a small contribution to either our Razoo #GivingTuesday campaign; or our Facebook #GivingTuesday campaign; second, let your holiday gift purchases count toward the campaign by designating the Four Mile Run Conservatory Foundation as your AmazonSmile charity (Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price for eligible merchandise).

Contributions to 'Kick the Habit' will be matched dollar-for-dollar through a Community Matching Fund grant we have been awarded through the Department of Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities (additional matching is available for gifts through Facebook). Our fundraising goal for this campaign is $3,000. With the matching funds and existing commitments, this amount will bring us to the $10,000 project budget.
