“The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.”—Albert Schweitzer
Applications are out for families to pick up and return if they need help this Christmas season. Service clubs are preparing to help us by interviewing applicants and determining their specific needs. Awards will be made at the end of November. If you know of a family in need, there is an application in this Mountain Messenger or you can contact us at email@example.com.
We try to help the children of these families have something for Christmas and warm clothes to wear. If we raise enough money, we are able to help with utilities and firewood as well. Every family that is approved for help receives a food box.
We hope you will consider helping us this year. We are so grateful to this giving community. If you would like to donate, please send your donation to: Penny Pitch, 383 Alderson Street, Lewisburg, WV 24901 or you can drop your donation off at the Mountain Messenger office on Court Street.
