The Hardy family has spent many decades focusing on how to best give back to their community and, through their generosity, have made an impact on the lives of individuals touched by hardships ranging from illness to unemployment. Their philanthropic spirit and sense of genuine caring for the human condition are the foundation that is igniting the recent efforts of a group of Nemacolin associates who have the heart and desire to personally touch lives in their community and truly make a difference. They have named this organization Nemacolin Gives Back.
Nemacolin Gives Back is not financially supported by any corporation or entity and operates solely on the generosity of Nemacolin associates. Therefore, the projects considered are primarily designed to involve the donation of personal time with the focus being that each project has a direct impact on an individual or cause. There are many in need who are often forgotten because their hardship doesn’t fall under a socially supported spectrum of charitable foundations. There are worthy causes shrouded in a cloud of hard work that most people seek to avoid. These are their focus.
On April 20th and 27th, Nemacolin Gives Back is thrilled to be participating in their first event since its inception in January of this year. Seventeen associates will travel to the site of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, to participate in a reforestation project. They will navigate steep and rocky terrain and plant seedling trees in an effort to help repair the damage that remains from years of coal mining in the region. The location of this project is one that is close to the hearts of many, yet the organizers had a difficult time filling the volunteer spots necessary to proceed with the project. Nemacolin Gives Back is very proud to be able to contribute and is looking forward to the challenge and the end result. In addition to this project, they will be participating in the building of a Habitat for Humanity home, as well as a Children’s Hospital special event and toy drive. Nemacolin Gives Back is currently searching for additional projects that will enlighten the lives of individuals, even if just for one day.
While individual passions may vary, the people involved in this organization share one belief that unites them: “What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” ― Albert Pike
