Posted:

BECKLEY (WVVA) - A Raleigh County group that helps counsel area child abuse victims has received a jolt in the form a donation from AEP.

American Electric Power donated $25,000 to Just for Kids during a special ceremony Tuesday.

Officials say the funds will be used for counseling and helping support staff while they interview children in potentially dangerous situations.

"To be a good corporate partner in the communities that we serve, that's the reason for it, is giving back to the communities that we serve," said David Langford, manager with AEP.

The goal of Just for Kids is to reduce trauma that children experience from abuse.
