Child refuge facility gets huge donation

Posted: Updated:

Burlington United Methodist Family Services said adding a chapel to their campus has been a dream of theirs since the 1960's when the institute first opened.

The Cline Family Foundation donated the original $250,000.  And The Darby Family Trust and Little General Stores donated an additional $100,000 for the chapel.

"Our children will have a place to worship and have other activities and our staff will have offices in the back which they have not had for a very long time we've been very crowded here," said Sheila Walker.

Burlington United Methodist is an organization that helps at risk children in Southern West Virginia.  The chapel is under construction right now and is set to be open this spring.
