BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Volunteers in Raleigh County continue to feed those in need.

The Beckley Housing Authority and Save the Children food bank will hold another food box pickup on Friday, April 23, 2021. The distribution will be held at Linda K. Epling Stadium in Beckley from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. It will be one box per family, with a limit of two boxes per car.
