Director Craig Hammond accepted the check. The check is on behalf of Cole Subaru and Subaru of America.
Senator Cole said, “It’s a wonderful opportunity to show cooperate America working with our local car dealers and then the car dealers being able to support local deserving charities. We’re just excited to be a part of it.”
Bluefield Union Mission Director, Craig Hammond said, “It couldn’t come at a better time because we expended a lot of resources during the last two storms.”
