"United Way of Southwest Virginia and the Wellspring Foundation of Southwest Virginia have partnered with Food City to obtain an 85,000-square-foot building that formerly housed a Kmart. The space will be used to create a Regional Child Care and Workforce Development Center.
The Wellspring Foundation of Southwest Virginia has committed $4 million towards the new facility. Bill Hayter, Chair of the Wellspring Foundation, said the project aligns with their goal."
