300,000 West Virginians are without clean water to drink or use, thanks to an environmental disaster. In response to this need, and after consultation with Red Cross officials in West Virginia, the Loudoun County Democratic Committee purchased and delivered a truck of bottled water to Charleston, WV today. This effort is being done with the gracious financial support of the LCDC, the ADAMS Center, and the Jennifer Wexton for State Senate Campaign. The LCDC is also accepting contributions in order to expand this effort through this donation page.
“This is a terrible situation,” said LCDC Chair Valerie Suzdak, “and I’m just glad we have so many caring people in our community who are willing to step up when their fellow Americans are in need. I am sincerely grateful to everyone who is giving their time, money, and energy to help alleviate the suffering of our neighbors in West Virginia.”
Any extra money collected beyond the costs of the water and truck will be donated to the Red Cross – West Virginia Region (http://www.redcross.org/wv/charleston).
Though the LCDC coordinated the effort, this work to help our neighbors has been conducted in an expressly non partisan fashion. The LCDC welcomes the help of any interested members of the community.
