Happy July, everyone!
Because of the new quarter, a new non-profit is participating in our Register Round Up program! From now until the end of September, we will be raising money for Friends of Deckers Creek!
Deckers Creek is a scenic tributary to the Monongahela River in north central West Virginia. From its headwaters outside the historic town of Arthurdale, Deckers Creek meanders through Preston County into Monongalia County, where it descends through a steep scenic gorge.
Through remediation projects, trash clean-ups, community outreach, and environmental education, FODC has managed to more sustainably clean and manage Deckers Creek and the environmental degradation caused by Acid Mine Drainage, pollution, neglect, sewage overflows, etc., turning the creek from a liability into a community asset.
Friends of Deckers Creek is working to clean up the decades of environmental degradation that have been inflicted on the watershed. With your donations at the register every time you check out, you are helping save an ecosystem that is beneficial for people, flora, and fauna alike.
