Charity is at the forefront of the minds of many during the Christmas and holiday season, but for those featured in the winter edition of ‘In Wheeling Magazine’, it’s a lifestyle.
The latest edition of ‘In Wheeling Magazine’ is featuring just some of those angels from around the Ohio Valley who shine their light year-round. Kathy Zafron from Crittenton Services, John Moses from Youth Services System Inc. and we sat down with Kathie Brown from Wheeling Health Right, “We’ve been here for 30 years and we’ve succeeded and grown because we do have so many guardian angels. I just get to have that title because I’m the director. But everybody that works with us is a guardian angel,” Brown said.
Brown was humbled for the honor and said it means so much to her, but at Wheeling Health Right; they’re a family with one common goal, “I’m very proud. I really am. I have an amazing staff who work extremely hard every day. And when you’re saving people’s lives and you hear people telling you that there’s no bigger reward,” Brown added.
The magazine also features stories of success and how these featured charities and social services throughout Wheeling can help change lives, “One theme that you see through all of these is that, they are good at helping people to help themselves. It’s not about a hand-out. It’s not about a hand-out. It’s not about dependence. It’s about building independence, and you’ll see that when you read about all of the charities we feature here. They’re good at it,” said ‘In Wheeling’ Editor-in-Chief, David Allinder.
To see and hear more from the guardian angels and the organizations they represent, you can pick up your copy of ‘In Wheeling Magazine’ at several places throughout the city including Kroger, Riesbeck’s, and Convenient Food Mart.
