Keep The Christmas Lights On
Coal miner’s keep the lights on is a familiar refrain in the coalfields. Now, one group is asking you to help keep the Christmas lights on for coal miners.
Citizens for Coal has launched an initiative to help laid off coal miners. The group will collect donations so they can provide food baskets and gift cards for out of work coal miners during the holiday season.
Roger Horton, president of Citizens for Coal says they need as much as people can give.
“We really need the public’s help on this. It’s an important and worthwhile cause and it will make a major difference for coal miners and their families, Horton said.
The address to send a donation is Keep The Christmas Lights On, P.O. Box 642, Holden, WV 25625.
