It was a weekend without water for one Greenbrier County community. Residents of Rupert were left high and dry after a water main break. That was followed by a boil water advisory after the pipes were repaired. In an effort to help the local residents, Kroger in Rainelle donated 4,000 bottles of water to the town.
“We greatly appreciate Kroger’s generosity,” said Mayor Jim Nicholls. “It’s nice to know that our neighbors will come to our aid in a health emergency.”
“Kroger is privileged to serve the wonderful communities in Greenbrier County, and it’s a pleasure to help friends and neighbors in emergency situations,” stated Rainelle Kroger manager, Steve Turner.
There are around 1,000 people who live in Rupert. The town is about 10 minutes from Rainelle.
