Charleston, WV - In an effort to support McDowell County, the West Virginia AFL-CIO has donated $6,500 to the Council of the Southern Mountains, a community action agency helping low-income families achieve self-sufficiency in the southern part of the state. The donation will aid in building new housing in the county. The new housing development is part of the “Reconnecting McDowell”project.
“We saw this as an exciting opportunity in assisting McDowell County to provide quality housing that is desperately needed for its residents. We were very fortunate to have partners such as AFTWV, Delegate Moore and The Council of the Southern Mountains in providing money for completing the water line for the new homes,” said Kenny Perdue, President of the AFL-CIO.
