Hey, Joe Justice here. Today on the Kanawha Valley Hustlers podcast, we’re at the Mountain Mission, working with the Kanawha Valley Business Group to put together boxes for a local charitable effort. It’s all part of what we do as a laid-back and relaxed group that meets every other week at the LaBelle Theater in South Charleston.
The vibe at our meetings is chill, and it’s super easy to get involved and connect with fellow business owners. If you’re curious, drop by at 8:30 in the morning, and you can find more details on the website. We’d love to have you join us and be part of the camaraderie.
One of the things that sets us apart is our commitment to giving back to the community. We make it a point to organize local charity events at least once a quarter. Today, we’re here at the Mountain Mission, assembling boxes to assist them in their goal of serving over thousands of families in need during the Christmas season.
I catch up with John Roberts, a fellow member, who shares his excitement about the Kanawha Valley’s growth and community involvement in 2024. His enthusiasm is infectious, and it’s clear we’re all on the same page about making a positive impact in the Greater Canal Valley.
Throughout the podcast, I speak with various members about their expectations for 2024. John Saar talks about the group’s growth, and Walter Hall emphasizes our shared vision of business growth and community involvement. The theme of lifting each other up and making a difference runs strong.
As we build the boxes, I connect with Skye Kinser, who expresses her anticipation for meeting new people and growing professionally in the coming year. The positive energy in the room is palpable, and it’s clear that everyone is not just focused on personal success but also on contributing to the community.
I engage with several members, each sharing their unique perspective on what they’re looking forward to in the Kanawha Valley in 2024. From Claudia Castro’s excitement about seeing businesses thrive to Jeff Cooper’s simple desire for more people to help, it’s heartening to witness the collective spirit of optimism.
