The Children’s Home Society (CHS) has partnered with the West Virginia Oil Marketers and Grocers Association (OMEGA) for the past several years in a statewide fundraising campaign called “Taking it Home for Mother’s Day,” centered on selling paper pink flowers for $1 each to raise funds for local children and families in need.

The campaign began on Apr. 17 and will run through Mother’s Day, May 14. Many local gas stations and convenience stores in Greenbrier and surrounding counties are participating to help fund local emergency child shelters and foster care and adoption programs. The campaign events are held to draw attention to the needs of children throughout West Virginia. The CHS locations in Greenbrier County are in Lewisburg and Rupert. For more information or to help a child in need, call 304-647-3430.
