LOUISA, VIRGINIA – the County of Louisa and Louisa County Public Schools (LCPS) have been working to promote kindness by focusing on the positive power of paying it forward in our community. Dominion Energy will also join in the next Kindness Day on April 26th, when the three organizations will undertake a road cleanup effort in the County.
“Dominion Energy is dedicated to protecting the environment and works daily to minimize our environmental footprint, protect our natural resources and improve the communities we share,” said Sarah Perkinson, Dominion External Affairs Representative. “We are proud to partner with Louisa County and Louisa County Public Schools on Kindness Day to assist with spring cleaning the County’s roadways.”
Since October 2018, LCPS and County representatives have donated hundreds of service hours to nursing homes, the animal shelter, the Resource Council, and other worthy causes. They have also contributed food for hungry children in the County, donated clothes to the Louisa County Resource Council, sponsored animal adoptions and raised money to help support Hurricane Florence recovery efforts in South Carolina.
“It’s incredibly important to support, encourage and assist one another,” said Christian Goodwin, County Administrator. “Being kind is the right thing to do, and it has a wonderful habit of spreading.”
Dominion Energy is joining in on the next Kindness Day on April 26th, when volunteers from the three entities will work on a widespread road cleanup effort in Louisa County. Crews have signed up to work cleanup shifts on numerous routes in the County that day, and the Virginia Department of Transportation is also assisting with the effort’s coordination.
“We’re excited to assist in beautifying Louisa County,” said Doug Straley, LCPS Superintendent. “I’m very proud that our TeamLCPS students and staff take an immense amount of pride in their community and want to volunteer their time to make our county a better place. Two of the 5 Cs we teach at Louisa County Public Schools are citizenship and collaboration, and this project will put those qualities into action.”
