MT. HOPE, WV (WVNS) — A local organization plans to hold a food drive on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and their efforts caught the attention of President-elect Joe Biden.
Harmony for Hope will hold the food drive. Founder of the organization, Carrie Kidd, entered their service to Biden’s inaugural team. She received a call their efforts will be recognized. On Monday, Jan. 18, 2021 their service day will be put on a website with thousands of other organizations.
“There was a national call out for those organizations who were giving back during Martin Luther King day. And seeing this was the 59th inauguration of President of the United States, I thought why not give our town a little bit of history,” Kidd said.
