Weirton Families in Need

Last night a gentleman contacted me about two Weirton, WV families who were in dire need of supplies for their children.  The families needed baby diapers (sizes 1, 5 and 6) and Similac with iron formula.  The children range in ages from 2 to 10 years old.  Through the use of social media we were able to get donations of food cards, gift cards and many people are sending the children much needed clothing.

While waiting for the mail to make its way to West Virginia, the kids are going to need to eat.  I spoke with Rob at Fox’s Den Pizza in Weirton and he has agreed to take phone donations towards a gift card for pizza for the weekend.  You can call (304) 723-3697 and ask for him.  He will take your cc info towards  gift certificate donation.

A very special thank you to everyone who has helped and to Kathi Eastham, owner of Fox’s Den for helping these families out!!

    I figured the quickest way to feed them this weekend was pizza and kids love pizza. I imagine they don’t get to have it a lot so it will be a real treat for them.

      Additionally, there is the Table of Hope at the First United Methodist church on West Street. On Fridays, a weekend snack bag is given to the children. The Table of Hope is open 4:30-6:30 Monday through Friday and there is no need to show income verification; it is open to all.
