CSX has donated $25,000 to the West Virginia National Guard Foundation, a nonprofit group that supports guard members and their families during their time of need.
Leaders from CSX presented the donation Tuesday to Adjutant General James Hoyer, according to a news release from Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s office.
"Our National Guard does great work both at home and abroad, and I truly appreciate CSX for providing the foundation with financial assistance to help our guard members when they need it most," Tomblin said.
The West Virginia National Guard Foundation provides financial support to guard members such as providing grant funds to homeless guard members, providing lodging money for the families of hospitalized guard members and assisting with other emergencies and needs.
J. Randolph Cheetham, CSX's regional vice president for state relations, lauded the National Guard for the work it does throughout West Virginia.
"Every time disaster strikes the Mountain State, members of the West Virginia National Guard rush to the aid of their neighbors to provide rescue and relief services for our citizens,” Cheetham said. “These brave men and women answer the call to duty with the utmost professionalism and efficiency in a spirit of kindness and caring."
