Shane McCoy

A good neighbor is one of life’s greatest blessings. Especially during winter!

During last week’s snow, wind, & frigid temperatures, Shane McCoy went up and down Kieffer Road in Crawley, WV, plowing driveways for his neighbors with his riding lawn mower. Just because…that’s what neighbors do.

And these driveways aren’t tiny patches in closely-nestled neighborhoods; many are hundreds of feet long. Yet Shane took the time to dig his neighbors out…because that’s what neighbors do.

While his neighbors try to pay him for his time plowing, he refuses. In the summertime, he mows grass for several as well. And it’s not unusual for him to bring her dinner as well! Because…that’s what neighbors do.

For Shane—and all the West Virginians like him who made it a point to check on their neighbors during last week’s storm—we are proud to name him as the certified Real West Virginian of the Week.
