Lots of folks seem to be doing everything they can to help clean up after Sandy swept through the Mountain State. One organization even moved their annual event to help those locally save a little money on their gas.
Faith Church International members stood outside all morning Saturday at Brady's Exxon in Fairmont, right off the Prickett's Fort Road Exit to their part. Volunteers helped clean windshields, emptied trash, pumped gas, and most importantly helped people save 25 cents per gallon. Those 25 cents were paid for by the church.
"We just want to be a blessing to the community. We thought we would do that in a practical way to meet peoples needs. Oh, the people love it. They'll actually fill up their particular vehicle then go home and bring their second vehicle and fill it up as well," said Karen Ford, Organizer.
Faith Church International members said they do a lot for the community for nothing in return. Their next helping hand will be at the Meadowbrook Mall closer to Christmas time, where they'll help wrap presents.
