BECKLEY – A Raleigh County community center is the beneficiary of a donation from Charleston.
The Raleigh County Community Action Association is getting a new sidewalk. The area in need is currently being worn away into a dirt path. The new sidewalk will connect employee parking with the entrance to the facility.
The $3,000 grant was presented to the Raleigh Co. Commission Tuesday morning by Raleigh Co. Delegate Linda Sumner, and she says there is money set aside every year for small projects like this.
“It's called community participation project money, and you submit them and then the finance looks them over and then it's initially approved by the governor.”
The RCCAA office is downtown behind the University of Charleston-Beckley campus.
