Shriners receive donation

Cumberland River Coal Company, a subsidiary of Arch Coal, recently donated $12,000 to the Mountain Shrine Club in Whitesburg to help fund a mobile kitchen unit so the Shriners can cook meals at different functions.

Bill Frazier, past president of the Shriners, said the $30,000 unit will include a pull-along trailer. The Shriners, who cater events to raise money for the Shriners’ hospitals, didn’t have the equipment to cook food on location.

“It’ll give us a whole new angle at what we do best and that is raising money for the kids,” said Frazier.
