MARTIN, Ky. (AP) — A facility to house volunteer workers has opened in eastern Kentucky.
WYMT-TV (http://bit.ly/VUhFoF) reports the Christian Appalachian Project has opened the Louis T. Foley Mission Center in Floyd County. The 18,000-square-foot center can house up to 120 volunteers at a time. Officials say the structure also can be used as a disaster shelter.
Christian Appalachian Project spokesman Bryan Byrd says the facility will help the organization make a "huge impact" on the area.
Crews began building the center in 2011.
