RONCEVERTE (WVDN) – For the last few years, Friends of Ronceverte (FOR), an organization designed to help the town of Ronceverte prosper and flourish, have spent a lot of time working on the little town they love.
Some of those projects include town clean-up projects such as Make it Shine in Ronceverte, Ronceverte Beautification, where they pick up trash and brush for street cleanup, and cleaning up flood victims’ homes and properties. They also host the annual Halloween Street Scare.
On top of that, they have done multiple fundraisers to help raise money for the new dog park, Ronceverte citizens’ house fire, given scholarships to graduating Ronceverte students and helped raise money for the Ronceverte Raiders football team.
“During Covid, we (also) had done things to help bring joy to the local kids since I couldn’t get out and about by dressing up and doing door to door drop offs,” Heather Masters, one of the original founders of FOR, said.
On Thursday, Aug. 4, the organization received a donation check from City National Bank’s Kroger location to help continue their efforts in making Ronceverte an ideal town in Greenbrier County.
It is the third consecutive year that the Kroger location has donated to FOR.
The check was presented to Masters and Ronceverte City Councilmember Tanya Hazelwood.
