The We Care Club of Clay County High School would like to make the public aware that we are continuing raising money for our Annual Christmas Drive on Saturday, October 3, 2015. We would first like to thank all the organizers and participants for raising the funds this year at the Apple Festival Car Show. We need to thank Mike Evans, Karen and Junior Burdette, Gary and Mary O’Brien, Nick and Juanita Bird, T. G. Griffith and others that have slipped my mind, for their participation for the last several years. Mike continued the tradition again this year and we would like to thank him and others who have worked so hard to raise the money that goes directly into the We Care Account at Clay County Bank or the account at the Clay County High School. Without this help we could not provide the food and clothing that many of our students need and it also helps to provide their needs at Christmas time. This is the last year for Mike coordinating this event and the We Care Club advisors, administrators, community volunteers and students would like to thank him for his many years of service in helping the children of Clay County. I personally value his friendship and appreciate his continued support. We would like to thank the many other people who have given special donations over the years and I know that God will richly bless you for your extended love and kindness.
We will be having our Annual Bucket Brigade at the Intersection at Two Run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 3, 2015. There will not be any students involved in this activity on the highway! We have also invited friends from the Highways and Hedges Motorcycle Ministry and Kanawha Valley Bikers For Christ to help us in this activity.
We would like to thank the Sheriffs Department, 911 Control, Clay County School System, Clay Ambulance Service, Mayor and Clay Town Council, State Road Department, WV State Police and other agencies/parties that know that we are involved in this activity.
If you are driving through this area during this time period we would ask that you would please be considerate and drive slowly and be patient if someone has stopped in front of you to make a contribution. As you drive through this area and you do not have the money to donate, we hope that you will not feel bad, but will just blow your horn in support of our student’s efforts to provide food, clothing and toys to needy Clay County children and families this Christmas and throughout the year.
We would also like to announce that if we have extremely bad weather that this activity will be cancelled because we do not want to jeopardize anyone during this activity. For any comments or any suggestions you might have please call Jerry Stover, President and Community Coordinator for the Clay County High School We Care Club.
