Elkton Area United Services looking for new work truck after vandalism

By  | 

ELKTON, Va. (WHSV) — A long-time Rockingham County organization created to assist people with community services says someone vandalized their work truck.

Elkton Area United Services said their old work truck is a complete loss after a vandal struck last Thursday.

"It's kind of a complex feelings that someone would damage a vehicle that is used to provide services to a community." said Marsha Deavers, executive director of EAUS.

Elkton Area United Services (EAUS) was founded in 1972 as a social service agency, beginning as part of the Elkton Ministerial Association. Since that time, they've become a critical partner of the United Way and help provide assistance with housing, utilities, food, GED classes, school supplies, books, transportation, senior citizen activities, and more.

They're primarily supported by donations, thrift store sales and United Way.

They're now in need of a new work truck, and are asking anyone interested in donating a full-size truck to contact them, because their busy donation season is about to begin.
