It’s easy to complain about the challenges young people in the Coal Region face — such as neighborhood blight, opioid abuse, or crime — but it’s empowering to take action and make a contribution to an organization like Coal Cracker Kids that is creating alternatives and opportunities.
To continue our work, we need gifts of $25, $50 or $100, as well as larger donations of $250, $500 and $1,000 from those who are able to give at that level.
You have the power to make a difference. Even a $5 gift will help.
Can we count on your support?
