Help us give back
Organized by: Katie Wooten
My local church is all about giving back to our community, but they have recently been dealt a rough hand. The church is located in a small town in WV where coal was the primary source of income for thousands. With the recent loss of jobs in the coal industry many families and businesses are struggling. Being a small town, there are few places that the youth can go to have fun. Drugs are becoming a large problem among the youth as well. The church's ultimate goal is to open a building that is designed for the youth in our community...to get the kids off the streets and giving them activity's to look forward too. However, the church recently has been having issues with leaking roofs that need replaced and foundation collapse that is preventing the project for the kids to move forward. With the job loss, the church income has dropped drastically. My goal is to help this church raise money to fix their roof and structural problems so they can get back on their feet and help our community. Our children desperately need this.
