About East Bank, WV
“Upper Kanawha Valley Workcamp”
Decades ago this was a thriving mining area. Now, not so much. But the community retains a small-town character and is largely composed of residential neighborhoods that follow the flow of the Kanawha River. Many of these neighborhoods were developed in the early 1900s around coal-mining operations. These West Virginians are a strong people who have contributed much to this nation’s success.
Now, many have been left behind with disabilities and Black Lung disease. They deserve decent housing, not the often-found run-down coal camp houses, and dilapidated trailers. This is where your group can really help. Your experience will be rich and historical, as you make new friends whom you’ll never forget and make real, practical differences in someone’s life. You will be hard pressed to find a more appreciative resident than when you work for a West Virginian.
The community school where your group will stay is located in a town that embraces our participants each year we arrive.
