Celebrate Sustainability Week with your favorite local restaurant.
Just over 6 years ago, Susan Garrison, the first Sustainability Manager for the Town of Blacksburg, passed away, and her family created a fund in her honor shortly after her passing. Susan’s fund supports special community projects that promote or support environmental awareness, environmental stewardship, sustainability, and/or community beautification in Blacksburg and the wider New River Valley.
Back in 2016, we held a Shop & Dine Day Fundraiser to help build up Susan’s Fund – and it was very successful – we raised more than $2,300! These dollars went right into funding community projects.
