Program Description

Event Details

Join us for a series of workshops presented by Bringing Back the Village!

Jennifer Waggener is the founder and Executive Director of Faith in Action of the Greater Kanawha Valley, a local nonprofit organization providing free services to older adults ages 60 and over in Kanawha and Putnam counties. Faith in Action volunteers offer one-on-one assistance to seniors with things like transportation to medical appointments, access to groceries and supplies, friendly check-in phone calls, and minor home repairs and maintenance projects. With a vibrant force of more than 200 trained and vetted volunteers, the program has served more than 500 of our community’s older neighbors. This workshop provides an overview of the organization’s work for both those looking for ways to serve and those who want to know more about accessing the services offered.



Individuals with disabilities who require accommodation to attend a program at any KCPL facility should contact the ADA Coordinator at least 48 hours prior to the event. Phone: 304-343-4646 ext. 1242 or 1268 Email:
