Keep Virginia Beautiful wants to invite you to participate in our first Shiver in the River. People gather, have fun, don silly costumes, do some cleaning, take their dip in the water, and then have a huge party - all while raising funds for a great cause.
Community Clean Up: - Join us to clean up on the banks of the James and surrounding areas. The river is generally running lower in January, so we'll have a unique opportunity to do some serious cleanup work and improve our environment. Every participant will Give60 minutes by gathering trash and recyclables.
James River Jump: - Show how much you love the James River and our beautiful state by raising funds to support both; then dare to enjoy a cool dip in the James River. Yes, we're going into the River!
Winter Festival: - To warm us up afterwards, we'll join for a Keep Virginia Beautiful Winter Festival, with heated tents, food, drink, music, and more. Remember, you can come for the Cleanup and/or the Jump, just join us for the Winter Festival, or go in for the whole experience. To participate in the Cleanup and/or the Jump, we ask that you gather at least $75 in donations to earn cool incentives and help Keep Virginia Beautiful. Volunteers are welcome!
