In response to an ongoing crisis in Charleston, the West Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill designed to help small businesses that are dealing with emergency situations. This hasn't stopped local organizations from continuing to collect items to send to the southern part of our state.

As the situation in the south continues to play out, many business owners and individuals are concerned about the future of their counties even after water service is restored.

Friday, the Harrison County Board of Education along with AFT Harrison, and several other organizations loaded up a truck and headed down to Charleston to help our neighbors in need.

"Not only do they need water, they need wipes to wash with, they need plastic silverware and plates because some of them still can't wash dishes, microwavable food because they can't use water to cook, so we tried to gather as much of that as we could to help out our neighbors," said Andrea Alfred, President of AFT Harrison.

Harrison County school officials say they will continue to send items to the southern parts of our state for as long as they are needed.
