Visit our Facebook page for a link to resources on how to donate and volunteer to help the victims of the severe flooding in our region.

Also, we are asking for donations to help us build our coffers for helping out folks in future floods/natural disasters. This is a major priority. 

Homelessness in our region is a terrible thing, and something that goes under the radar because it isn't seen as easily as you'd see it in a big city. However, it is a problem and we are doing our part to help with Operation Helping Hand. We'd love your help and support. #Appalachia #homeless #helpinghand #payitforward
