Members of Piedmont and Pleasant Valley United Methodist Churches were on a mission to help the community of Rosedale, W.Va. The three-day activity took place Aug. 8-12 to assist residents and distribute items.

Volunteers also transported clothing and sewing machines, the latter to help with the Burden Bear charitable project. The bears were donated to VA hospitals, hospital children’s wards and nursing homes.
