Bodyworks in beckley has a promotion that runs through thanksgiving to Christmas where gym memberships are only $25. One of the reasons for this promotion is to help provide coats to children through a program called “Operation Warm”.
“We’re going to extend that this year like we have in previous years, to raise money for “Operation Warm”, which is a program that is done through the professional firefighters of Beckley. So over the last two years our members, new members and people that are members now have joined and re-joined and we’ve donated money Over $12,000 to a local here in Beckley so that they can provide coats to needy kids”. Said Mick Bates, Bodyworks President.
