Helping Hands Blanket Donation

The FOCLA is a not-for profit organization committed to informing others of the importance of coal and helping individuals and families in their community.  They recently donated 120 blankets to the Helping Hands Community Resource Center to keep homeless citizens in their community warm.  Helping Hands is a not-for-profit organization that provides emergency services to people in the community. The First Baptist Church of Beckley spearheads this project which collects blankets, food, and clothing for those in need.  The FOCLA is happy to partner with Helping Hands and do their part to support this very important project.  If you are interested in donating to Helping Hands, please call 304-253-3467.  To learn more about the Friends of Coal Ladies Auxiliary, please go to
