The Middlesboro Mall and The Big One 106.3 WRIL have again joined forces to give back to the community. This time the collaboration is to recognize local coal miners.
Marketing Director for Middlesboro Mall Sheila Durham explained that the partnership is coming in the form of coal miners appreciation week.
“Middlesboro Mall with WRIL has partnered once again to give support to our local coal miners by recognizing them this week during coal miner appreciation week” said Durham. “This is just another way we try to give back to our community.”
Monday marks the beginning of Coal Miner’s Appreciation Week. Friends and family members of local coal miners can stop by the mall during regular hours and put the coal miners names into the drawing. The drawing box is located at center stage by the Incredible Chocolate Chip Cookie Company.
Every day WRIL’s Brian O’Brien will draw names from the box and announce prize winners live on air and via the station’s various social media outlets.
