The Hawksbill Greenway Foundation recently received a donation of $1000 from VF Jeanswear. This was part of a Sustainability award that the VF Jeanswear Luray facility received for being a Zero Waste Facility in 2015. As part of the award, they were able to donate to a “Green Project” in our community. The Foundation is most grateful for the donation.   READ MORE
