A LOOK BACK
In addition to our six years of service in central Appalachia, successfully completing nearly 70 significant home improvement projects, and our community assistance initiatives in both Clay County schools and local businesses, Vision Appalachia has conducted Sports Camps with hundreds of kids each summer who have responded to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Our “Picnic in the Parking Lot” is an annual event we put together so the whole community can enjoy free food, live music and activities that meet spiritual and physical needs of those who are in need.
With our focus on “doing what he did” and sharing the care and compassion of Christ, we have built a food pantry in cooperation with the area’s high school to stock food and dry goods for the community on a yearly basis.
In 2016 we diligently assisted in disaster relief during the flood that affected Clay and Kanawha Counties. Through networking with local businesses and generous individuals, Vision Appalachia was able to provide food, supplies and a semitrailer used for much needed storage. Without the devoted groups who moved hearts and MUD during this disaster, we were able to aid in clean up and reconciling what was lost in so many of the lives affected by this tragedy.
