Jim Justice on Welfare & Poverty
If we can't find money to fight hunger, then we're not much
We've got too many people all across our state that are hungry. I want absolutely to commit a million dollars to create more food pantries for people that are really out there and hurting.
In addition to that, I want to take $2 million and go to the
Department of Education and put that into their Backpack Program. Can you imagine going home on Friday and know you're going to be hungry? If we can't find $2 million to help our kids and help the hungry, then we're not much of us.
