Water collected for chemical spill victims


Bluefield, W.Va. (WVVA)--A group of churches in the area collected nearly 100 cases of water to help out people affected by the chemical spill.

Volunteers made a stop at the Mt. Zion Pentecostal Church in Bluefield on Monday before heading to the Charleston area.

Church leader Tim Moore says the large donation was made by members of churches in Mercer, McDowell, and Raleigh counties. He says though water stations have been set up in various places in Kanawha County; some people don't have transportation or the means to get there.

"It makes your heart feel good to be able to reach out and help people who are really in need. I would like to think that if we were dealing with something like that here in Bluefield, they would help us as well. It's doing the work that God has commanded us to do, to look out for our brothers and sisters and we feel like we are trying to do that, "say Tim Moore.

Volunteers donated paper products as well.
