"Happy Kids" in the Beckley paper!

A project initiated by our Mission Team in 2010 was featured this week in The Register-Herald (Beckley). The story begins:

"The Happy Kids Project is a network of churches, clubs, non-profit organizations, individuals and civic groups working together to aid at-risk youth by providing school-related items for students whose families cannot afford them and assisting students in funding for after-school or enrichment activities.

'As is the case everywhere, there is a great need throughout Greenbrier County,' said organizer Jane Gillespie. 'Schools provide what children need to achieve academically. Happy Kids is a resource for non-academic needs.'"
