Greenbrier Democratic Women’s Club continues its mission to live our values and support our community. During the month of October, we collected donations and supplies for the Family Refuge Center. The Center serves Greenbrier, Monroe and Pocahontas counties providing services to curtail domestic violence.
Donations included a truckload of items for the shelter including toiletries, kitchen utensils, blankets and winter coats. Family Refuge Center Director Stephanie Moore stated that hours spent by the club in collecting supplies also serves as an in-kind donation to help the Center.
We want to thank all those who contributed to this important project.
During the month of November, we will be assisting the nine food pantries in Greenbrier County to provide food to our local families. We will accept food and other items to benefit the pantries as well as monetary donations.
Preferred products that can’t be purchased with EBT (food stamps):
- Paper products – toilet tissue, paper towels, etc.
- Hygiene products – toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, soap, feminine hygiene, etc.
- Cleaning products – bleach, detergent, dish soap, etc.
Preferred food products to supplement regular distributions: jelly/jam, soups, canned meats, canned fruit, Ramen noodles, snacks, cereal.
Most food pantries receive a good supply of peanut butter, canned vegetables, and macaroni and cheese from the Mountaineer Food Bank, so the need for these items is not as great. However, we will take whatever is donated.

mall, behind Ruby Tuesday) 2 to 4 p.m., Monday and Tuesdays, Nov. 15,
