Hosanna Industries is planning multiple trips to the Richwood community of Nicholas County, West Virginia. Plans include building 15 new homes for impoverished households that lost their homes to the flood, repairing 30 homes with new drywall, electrical, insulation, etc., providing 30 furnaces and 50 hot water tanks, as well as other household appliances, miscellaneous household items and tools. Hosanna plans to refurbish an industrial building in the community for housing volunteers, storing materials, feeding people, etc. Total costs are around $1.5 million, all of which will be provided through donations.
Richwood, WV has a poverty rate of 46%, according to the Nicholas County Community Foundation, and many are recently unemployed due to the coal mining operations being shut down.
