Penny Pitch is gearing up to be of service to the community again this year. Most children are getting excited for the surprises Christmas may bring. Unfortunately, many children do not know if they will have those surprises. Also, the cooler weather and the dropping leaves remind that winter is approaching and many of our friends and neighbors will not have heat or warm clothes to see them through the season.
For many years, this wonderful community has come together to donate and to support Penny Pitch as we try to help as many families as possible. Service clubs and volunteers interview families to determine needs; donations come from generous individuals throughout the community and beyond; and together, we make Christmas warm and pleasant for children and families throughout the county.
If you or someone you know needs help from Penny Pitch this year, you can find an application in today’s Mountain Messenger, at any City National Bank location, through the United Way, and at many local social service agencies. You can also contact Penny Pitch on Facebook at Penny Pitch – Greenbrier County, WV or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
