Dawson Road Maintenance Crews were happy to lend a hand to the Bulkley Valley Christian School (BVCS) for their Litter-a-thon initiative last week, May 6.

Students in grades 7 through 12 cleaned up an almost 30 kilometre stretch on BC Highway 16 between Telkwa and Evelyn, while DRM crews happily followed behind to transport the litter to the landfill.

BVCS has been holding this event for over 30 years. It’s a tradition allowing students to give back their community, provide the environment with a helping hand and to raise money.

All fundraising efforts go directly to the students to help pay for class trips, sports fees and other electives. If you are interested in sponsoring a student, it is not too late! Visit the BVCS Litter-a-thon page to donate.
