Rise Against Hunger & Harvest Pack
Before coming to West Main, Skyler and Ronella Daniel were short-term missionaries serving in Romania with Project Ruth. We’ve joined Skyler and Ronella in their commitment to this mission, which gives life-changing educational opportunities to children living in poverty, especially those from Roma communities and many West Mainers have had the privilege of traveling to Romania to serve with the Ruth School. Currently, Project Ruth is providing vital assistance to Ukrainian Refugees with housing, transportation and other necessary resources. project-ruth.org
West Main regularly hosts food packing events for these two organizations which provide meals to school children in Danville and around the world. www.riseagainsthunger.org www.harvestpack.org

West Mainers have been roofing houses since our old World Changers days and we continue that tradition with our local missions partner, Habitat for Humanity. Currently, Habitat is building a brand new neighborhood of 30 houses, Habitat Village North. www.habitat.org/us-va/danville/danville-pittsylvania-county-hfh
