Southern Appalachian Labor School receives $2500 donation

Fayette Co., W.Va. (WOAY) Appalachian power smiled onto the Southern Appalachian Labor School this holiday season with a donation totaling $2500. And this donation has not gone unappreciated.

“Well, it’s a sizable donation for us, and we’re very appreciative. And it’s also indicative of the fact that, you know, the company is willing to, you know, do something for what we’re trying to do. I think that’s really important and good.” said John David.

The Southern Appalachian Labor School is one organization that is dedicated to helping the residents of the mountain state in any way they can.

Through providing things such as food, clothing, shelter and other essential services, SALS has secured their name among those changing the community for the better.

“SALS is a nonprofit organization that is set up to provide food, clothing, shelter and, you know, other essential services to low-income people in the area.” said John David, director of SALS.

In a time where larger corporations are often seen as foreign and detached from the community, donations and gestures like these go a long way.

And all of this would not be possible without the help of one man who has working closely with both SALS and Appalachian Power

“Ryan Robinson has been extremely friendly toward us in the past. And he is based as the external affairs director coordinator in the Beckley area for a certain region. And we’re very, very pleased that they’re willing to assist us and those that we, you know, people that we serve.” said John David.

It is through donations and situations like these that keep operations like SALS going, and those running it know that best.

“We’ve been doing this for a long time, and we are blessed to have volunteers, people who are really excited and willing to contribute to support what we’re doing. And so we’re just we’re just doing what we’re doing the best we can for people.” John David said.
