Give Local MOV
Give Local MOV is one day of giving that is easily done online. WCRC’s mission is to Re-Build our Ballfields.
That of WV generously leased the “old Eagles Fields” to WCRC which are used by WCRC as well as several
softball, baseball, school and adult leagues. When the State orginally leased the fields to us, and unknown
person(s) went to the field, removed several hundred feet of fence. Any contributions made to Give MOV
for the Wood County Recreation Commission PACF will match up to $100.00. Meaning if you donate $20, they
will match it and we will earn $40. All funding generated will be used for puchasing the much needed 3
– 250 ft sections of fence, that go down the foul lines, from the dugouts to the outfield fence. Any
additional funds will be used to repair the dugouts and any other items needed for the field. On May 5th, go to givelocal.org, click on Wood County Recreation Commission, make your donation
and help us REBUILD OUR FIELDS for the youth in our community. Every donor will receive a receipt for tax

FYI:You may drive through the park during warm
weather and see us sitting outside our office. Please do not assume we are not working.
With a staff of only two, we are often working 10-12 hour days. During summer months,
our Playground Program runs in the large shelter across from our office, a Tennis program at the Tennis Court, and
we also manage Mini Golf. We often sit outside watching Mini Golf for customers if no staff person
is scheduled due to budget or watching the Playground Program, while staying close enough to hear incoming phone calls.
We may also be on our lunch break, yet still answering phones, waiting on clients, working Mini Golf, etc.
So Please…don’t just assume we are not working. We work 24/7. Thank
WCRC wishes to sincerely
thank the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and all of it's staff, board members, and contributors. Because

Program. We appreciate all you've done for the youth of our community!
