Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What's this organization all about, and how old is it?

A. This organization was started by three guys in 2012, Jackie Holt, Cotty Farley, and Jimmy Noel, all from the HHS Class of 1967. We started this to "give back" to the community which nurtured us while growing up, and helped propel us into the real world. We spent a year meeting with Summers County business leaders, local governmental officials, church leaders, and Summers County residents. We asked "How can we make the most impact?" We gathered that input and decided to start with painting some of the school buildings. There are endless projects, and we'll never run out of ways to help.
