Bill and Bonnie Stubblefield Establish Campaign Against Litter Fund
Forward-thinking Berkeley County civic leaders Bill and Bonnie Stubblefield recently donated $500,000 to the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation to establish the Campaign Against Litter Fund. The Stubblefield’s gift, along with contributions to the fund from other donors, will be invested by the Foundation for the next four to five years. The goal is to grow the Campaign Against Litter Fund to $1 million and at the same time, begin laying the groundwork for establishing a comprehensive program to pick up roadside litter in Berkeley County.
We are honored to have been entrusted with this gift and are looking forward to working with other community organizations to make certain that an effective litter control program will be put into action. The Stubblefield’s shared vision is an exciting one, and we believe that we can make Berkeley County a more beautiful place to live and work by implementing this simple program. Our mission is to bring about lasting change through a focused effort picking up roadside litter using investment gains from the fund. By doing so, the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation can make certain that the program will be supported in perpetuity, and that the Stubblefield’s vision for a cleaner community will be realized.
