Bethany Organization Collecting Canned Goods, Donations for Mozingo Family

BETHANY, W. Va. – After a tragic explosion in Follansbee, W.Va., that destroyed the Mozingo family’s home and killed 13-year-old Hannah, a Bethany College organization is hoping to help the family through donations.

Bethany’s chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society for education, is holding the donation drive, which will continue until Nov. 8.

“For field placements, observations and student-teaching, many of our education majors are placed in Brooke County Schools,” said Assistant Professor of Reading Education and Kappa Delta Pi advisor Angela Icard. “Brooke County students, teachers and staff are part of our extended family.”

Canned goods and other necessities can be dropped off at stations in the cafeteria, Morlan Hall, T.W. Phillips Memorial Library, McCann Writing Center, Hurl Education Center and the Office of Student Life. Gift cards and other monetary donations will only be accepted at the Library.

Bethany College is a small college of national distinction located on a picturesque and historic 1,300-acre campus in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. Founded in 1840, Bethany is the state’s oldest private college.
