Coal River Valley Herbal Clinics
September 12-16, 2016
Aurora Lights partnered with Herbal Medics, a non-profit dedicated to bringing botanical medicine and sustainable solutions to communities in critical need, to offer a week of free, herbal clinics in the communities of Whitesville and Naoma. A team of sustainable engineers also installed two rainwater filtration and catchment systems in Prenter and on Kayford Mountain. This marks the beginning of the Aurora Lights Herbal Medic Chapter which will provide workshops and clinics centered around herbal medicine and sustainable community health.

Flood Relief 2016
Aurora Lights has been involved in organizing relief for the victims of the floods in West Virginia. Flash floods occurred on June 23 and completely decimated areas of the state. Many of these flash floods were record-breaking. We stepped in to provide relief efforts much like we did during the 2014 Water Crisis.
Aurora Lights partnered with volunteers in 6 counties to collect supply donations and transport goods to donation distribution centers. Altogether, our volunteer efforts resulted in over $10,000 worth of monetary and supply donations being sent directly to people in need.
We are now shifting our focus onto projects that will help people rebuild and weatherize their disheveled homes before winter weather sets in.
