Harlan County Community Action Agency is raising funds to assist the Harlan County miners and their families who were affected by the BlackJewel Coal Bankruptcy. These miners were last paid on June 28, but had their paychecks pulled from their bank accounts on July 1. Miners and their families have been left with negative bank account balances, unable to pay for basic needs, and wondering how they will be able to keep afloat.
100% of funds donated will be used to assist miners and their families in meeting their immediate needs, such as assisting with mortgage, rent, utilities, and food. Thank you to everyone who has helped us reach our goal of $5,000! We continue to raise funds in support of the miners beyond our goal so that we can assist as many miners and their families as possible.
