Church helps school
The congregation of First Christian Church of Weirton, located at 3252 Main St., Weirton, recently collected and donated school supplies to Weirton Elementary. The supplies will be used by the teachers to restock their classrooms and for students who are in need of supplies. Among the items donated were tissues, backpacks, pencils, crayons, paper, glue sticks and markers. Making the presentation was Janet Ford, center, chairperson of the outreach committee, to Denise Miller, principal, and Derek Van Dyke, vice principal, as well as some appreciative students. The church also supports the school’s Weekend Backpack Program.
