STATE AWARD: Washington D.C. Military Partnership
Washington, D.C. $2,000 STATE AWARDS - More than 250 volunteers -- including Air Force and Navy personnel and families, Marine and Army personnel, Park Service staff, Bell Atlantic employees and at-risk youth from Covenant House Washington -- helped clean up Anacostia National Park, along five miles of the Anacostia River. Two hundred garbage bags were filled with debris, such as syringes and glass. The park's roller rink and trash cans were painted, as was the outdoor deck of an environmental-education program for kids. The honoree's $2,000 award from Wal- Mart will benefit Building Bridges Across the River.
