Over the years, Mountain Mission has helped thousands of people like Cleo.
During the winter and particularly during the holiday season, there is always a great need in the community for everything from basic toiletries and clothing to school supplies and food. Goods can be donated to the Mountain Mission donation center at 1670 Seventh Ave. in Charleston, Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help sort donations, and, as always, financial support is welcome.
When you make a donation to the Gazette Charities, every penny goes to the agencies and people who need help.
The Gazette covers the administrative costs of the fund. All donations to Gazette Charities are tax-deductible.
