BENEFITING: YADKIN RIVERKEEPER INC
Aveda Hanes Mall
We are raising money for the Yadkin Riverkeepers, a 501(c) non-profit local to the Triad area of North Carolina. The Yadkin Riverbasin extends over 700 miles and is home to over 580 species of wildlife. It is also the main source of potable water for over 800,000 residents in the area. it is vital to keep this river clean and usable for generations to come. The river faces challenges from unregulated farmlands near the river and the run off of industrial waste. The Yadkin Riverkeepers work tirelessly to educate the public and the youth, perform clean-up activities along the river and advocate in legislation to enact stronger water protection policies for the many families affected by the growing pollution along the river and all of the Triad residents.
