MCCAC Holds Fundraiser for New Building

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

The Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center moved into a brand new build earlier this week on Green Bag Road in Morgantown. 

"We have more room to offer more services for our clients," said Ashlee Talbot, an intern at the MCCAC. "Because it's a new building for the kids and the community, we want to invite them to help us decorate it."

The MCCAC invited the community to join them at the Wow Factory for a little painting fun.

Audra Wells came to paint with her family.

"Both my daughters, they are 7 and 4, they got to paint tiles," said Wells. "I painted an ocean tile, and my mother painted an abstract tile."

Each person donated $15 to paint a tile and they will all be put up behind the reception desk in the new building.

Ashlee Talbot from the MCCAC said that since the building is for the community, it's only right that they be a part of its decorating.

"We've gotten good feedback from our clients, they absolute love it, the play room, the new features," said Talbot. "We got bean bag chairs, which they absolutely love. We just want them to feel more comfortable as they come in and to help beautify our space."

Wells said that she thought the idea was great because it was all for a great cause.

"I thin kids are our future and anything you can do to help children," said Wells. "I think it's very important to be there for them."

The money from the event will go towards helping the new building become the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center's permanent home.
