Keyser has several opportunities for students, staff, and faculty to volunteer their time and efforts.

This would be a great experience for any student organizations that may be interested in lending a helping a hand.

Community Closet Cleanout

Fall Community Closet Cleanout is an unincorporated non-profit association held at Boyce-Houser Post 41 American Legion on Main Street in Keyser. Students can sort and organize clothing and small household items before and during the event.

The Closet will be open Saturday, Oct. 29, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 30, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Open to everyone.

Donations will be accepted on Friday, Oct. 28, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If anyone would like to donate their time or may have any unwanted items, this would be a wonderful opportunity to recycle and help others.

Please contact Cheri’ Alt at 304-813-5746 or Cheri Gannon at 304-813-0224.

The event is coordinated by Alt and the Board of Directors partnering with Hands of the Potomac Highlands and PSC Office of Housing & Residence Life.

Mineral County Humane Society

   The Mineral County Humane Society is a small group of local animal lovers working to assist our four-legged friends, who cannot help themselves.

The society donates materials to have dog houses built and works with other shelters to help find permanent homes for unwanted pets. These things are all made possible by those donating time to the projects, as well as the generous monetary donations of members and individuals in the community.

They meet every 3rd Tuesday at the Moose Lodge in Keyser at 7 p.m. New volunteers are welcome to come and join them as they help those in need.

For more information, email brisimone1@gmail.com or gregncathy@hotmail.com or call 304-813-6966.

Angel Tree 

   The Angel Tree was created in 1995 with the support of Mineral County Family Resource Network (MCFRN) to ensure that every child in Mineral County wakes up on Christmas morning with a present under the tree.

Helen Cullen, project coordinator of Angel Tree, also does a yearly coat drive to ensure children stay warm throughout the winter.

Volunteers help with the sorting and delivery of coats as well as the Angel Tree gifts.
