As an agency, Kanawha Communities That Care takes pride in the work it is involved in to make Kanawha County an even better place to live, work, and play.
As part of their mission and vision, KCTC participates in a wide variety of activities that educate local residents on issues occurring around them, resources available to them, and plans for further resource development and growth.
In order to be effective, KCTC understands the need to organize and get folks involved in local community events. An active community is a major impetus to a successful community. One in which economic, educational, and social opportunities are plenty.
To that end, KCTC is organizing a city-wide Syringe and Needle Clean Up to take place at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17, 2018. Volunteers will gather in the Plaza East parking lot located on Morris Street across from Power Park in Charleston. Sanitarians will be present to train volunteers on safe pick-up procedures, equipment and green vests will be made available, and volunteers will be filled with coffee, juice, and donuts to kick off their St. Patrick’s Day festivities. Volunteers will then be divided into teams, and head out for the clean-up.
Special thank you to the Charleston Police Department and Prestera Center for their help in this endeavor. For more information please contact Kim Shoemake at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (304) 437-3356.
