BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – North Central West Virginia Airport is currently accepting donations for the Hope Inc. Domestic Violence Center.
Items that can be donated include blankets, pillows, hygiene products, non-perishable foods, and anything else that can be used for a new household.
Anyone who donates five or more items can be entered into a raffle to win two Allegiant Airlines round-trip tickets from CKB to Orlando.
Airport officials said the idea for the fundraiser came from a desire to help people in the community.
âIt’s wonderful that the community comes to support all these people. I mean, the airport agreed to do that – you know, I think it’s just great. It’s a win-win situation for everyone, âsaid Carol Goad, manager of the airport office.
Donations are accepted until December 17 at the airport security desk from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday. If you can’t make that time, Goad said you can always drop it off, and airport workers will take care of it from there.
