Meyers delivers on promise of giving

Dec. 22, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Charles Meyers loves woodworking and loves helping out in the community.

Combining those two loves enabled Meyers to bring joy to some 700 grateful students at Huntington Middle School Friday, Dec. 13, through his 'A Gift to Remember in December.'

Meyers, a spring 2013 MU graduate and a Huntington native, and volunteers made about 700 desk caddy gifts, and delivered them to Huntington Middle School, which is the former Cammack Middle School.

Meyers' organization, "Future Investment Program," is responsible for the project.

Meyers said his two assistants, Hayley Cornwell, a senior criminal justice and psychology major at Marshall University, and Chelsey Cosby, a senior elementary education major at Marshall, helped him throughout the planning process of the project. The Center for African American Students at Marshall was the sponsor for the initiative. Antioch Missionary Baptist, Black United Students, and My Brother's Keeper were an integral part of the volunteering aspect of the initiative as well, Meyers said.
