Highlights is a 30 minute weekly TV show featuring organizations, events, grass-roots efforts and people who move our state and community forward in a positive way.
The show is a collaboration with Kanawha County Schools, Suddenlink Communications, and Jim Strawn & Company.
The show airs daily at 8:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Suddenlink’s channel 17.
The show airing December 13, 2021 – December 20, 2021 features the Union Mission and their Tower of Toys project.
We interviewed Jason Quintrell, Director of Union Mission. He discussed the purpose of the Union Mission.
Since 1911, Union Mission has been a ready, active hand of help to the needy of West Virginia. Their mission is “helping hurting people in Jesus’ name,” and as such, they unabashedly share the gospel of Jesus Christ even as we minister to the physical needs of the downtrodden. They have seen God’s work in amazing ways through the various ministries to improve lives and draw people closer to Him. All over our state, the Union Mission has gained a reputation of being there for those who have nowhere to turn.
Union Mission’s scope of ministry is wide but largely consolidated into five areas:
- Union Mission Men’s Shelter
Their downtown rescue shelter facility for men. Read More…
- Union Mission Addiction Recovery Program
Their discipleship program for men and women committed to addiction recovery. Read More…
- Union Mission Family Services
Offering food, clothing, and counseling to struggling families in 17 West Virginia counties. Read More…
- Union Mission Outreach
Satisfying physical and spiritual hunger in 28 West Virginia counties. Read More…

- Sustainable Agriculture Program
Providing nutrient-dense, high quality food for those in need while teaching a valuable life skill of sustainability. Read More…
- Vocational Advancement Program

Union Mission ministers in other ways as needed, particularly in times of emergency; flood relief, for example, has been an area of ministry in which the mission has participated significantly in recent years.
Union Mission receives absolutely no local, state, or federal support of any kind. Since 1911, our freedom to address the physical and spiritual needs of thousands of people has been purchased solely with the donations of those who choose to partner with us financially. We hope that you will support this ministry through prayer as well as donation and volunteering as we go about “Helping Hurting People in Jesus’ Name.”
Jason also discussed their annual Tower of Toys project done in conjunction with WCHS TV8 / Fox 11.
Simply bring an unwrapped children’s toy to 1301 Piedmont Road, home of TV8/Fox 11.
On December 20th, the Union Mission has a service then a distribution party for families and children in need.
