The Presbyterian Women in the Synod of the Trinity (PWST), which includes Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the Upper Ohio Valley, presented a gift to the Free Wheelchair Mission at its Sept. 14 business meeting. Each year the women select a mission project for the Synod, alternating between international and domestic projects. The 2014-15 project raised $38,703.61.
