Chesapeake Bay Trust, Groupon Announce Watershed Clean-up
The Restore Our Waters campaign would work towards removing more than 2,000 pounds of trash from the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
In a news release, the two organizations announced the Restore Our Waters campaign, an initiative to remove more than 2,000 pounds of trash from streams and waterways in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, today.
From Monday to April 22, Groupon subscribers can pledge support—in $10 increments—that would go towards community clean-up projects that would engage thousands of locals, remove trash and other restoration efforts, the release states. The deal can be found on the Washington, D.C. Groupon Grassroots website.
"We look forward to creating new awareness for the Chesapeake Bay Trust as one of the local organizations in Maryland to be featured on Groupon Grassroots," said Dr. Jana Davis, interim executive director of the Chesapeake Bay Trust in the release. "Through this partnership, we are excited to engage a broader audience and raise much needed funding to help an issue so many of us care deeply about—restoring local waterways for future generations."
