Harrison County business raising money for local family


A Harrison County business is raising money to help the victims of a recent fire.

Applehouse of West Virginia will be donating 10% of its sales for the next seven days, until December 21, to the Cain Family Fund. The family lost their father/grandfather and everything they owned in a fire on December 4. The new store in Nutter Fort is also accepting clothing donations and Christmas gifts for the family, who have several young children.

Relatives said this kind of support from the community is really appreciated. 

“This man was a hero. He was a Vet. He was an EMT. He was a Firefighter. Most of my family are military or firefighters. This man and his family, which he loved dearly, deserves nothing but the best  and he would want everyone helping his daughter right now,” said Bridget Queen, a relative of the man who passed away in the fire on December 4.

All donations for the Cain Family Fund can be dropped off at Applehouse of West Virginia, located at 407 Buckhannon Pike in Nutter Fort, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.- 8 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Any monetary donations for the Cain Family Fund can be dropped off or mailed to Applehouse of West Virginia, or can be donated on their Facebook page. All monetary donations will be used to help the family with funeral expenses and rebuild their lives.
