The Northern Panhandle Chapter of the Gabriel Project of West Virginia teamed up with Sunset Recycling for a "green" fundraiser Saturday afternoon. They collected unwanted electronics at the Edgewood Lutheran Church.
They also sold baked goods for the organization that helps single mothers who are struggling to make ends meet. The Gabriel Project helps about 150 people in Wheeling by providing baby supplies and emotional support.
Lawrence Bandi dropped off his electronics to support the project.
"I'm always supportive of the Gabriel Project. It's a wonderful organization," he says.
Northern Panhandle Chapter Coordinator, Faith Hicks, explains their mission.
"Our mission at the Gabriel Project is to work with young families providing cribs, car seats, diapers, and all of their personal needs," she says. "David has been kind enough to connect with us to provide the opportunity to make it a better world for everybody."
David Seum, the CEO of Sunset Recycling, added he donated the company's services in hopes the Gabriel Project can further theirs.
The organization is holding a "Mommy and Me Fair" Saturday May 11th at Wheeling Jesuit University from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
