BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The Mountain State Centers for Independent Living is rasing money for a special fund.
A new series of fundraisers will showcase local chefs making meals for a limited number of donors. The first chef to distribute meals Sept. 21 is the Dancing Chef, a Girl Scout hoping to earn her Silver Award by making 16 chicken casseroles.
“Anytime she feels that her help is needed she’s always there,” said Kelly Elkins, the chef’s mother and the centers’ community resource facilitator. “I’m proud of her that she’s helping and she’s wanting to be a part of the community and help those who are in need.”
Donated money will go towards a special project giving disabled people access to loans without interest.
To get a chicken casserole or volunteer as a chef for future events, contact the Centers for Independent Living on its Facebook page.
